The internet has done harm to a lot of antiquated industries. Maybe none so much as the crash of the encyclopedia markets. What now? What do we do with all of these books? Finally a solution to the ever growing useless encyclopedia problem. Artist Alexander Korzer-Robinson carves these amazing murals using nothing but recycled encyclopedias. Awesome.
“Through my work in the tradition of collage I am pursuing the very personal obsession of creating narrative scenarios in small format. Using antiquarian books, makes the work at the same time an exploration and a deconstruction of nostalgia.”
Alexander is a Bristol based artist. You can actually buy some of these beautiful works at his website found at the link below.
