Book Autopsies

Brian Dettmer is our staff’s pick for Today’s Featured Artist.  Here is an excerpt from a 2007 interview with the artist, including more examples of his work:

Brian utilizes existing books, cassette tapes, and video tapes to create completely new works of art. When dealing with books, Brian cuts into the pages revealing fragmented images and words, and in turn restores value to books that had otherwise been tossed away and forgotten. Forgotten much like the cassette tape that for Brian now become a build blocks to creating a skull. He melts and shapes these tapes into the desired and therefore finding use for these relics.-Orange Alert
