Home Sweet Tome: A House Cut Into A Book

Danish artist Olafur Eliasson reminds us to never judge a book by its cover. Better known for his public installations and sculptural work, Eliasson’s book Your House brings architectural scale to a microscopic level. Out of 454 pristine pages, Eliasson laser-cuts the negative space of his Copenhagen home, each sheet serving as a paper-thin cross section that gives shape to tiny doors, stairways, and window frames.

Hiding intricate nooks between two unassuming covers, Eliasson’s work literally speaks volumes. Carving depth into 2D surfaces, Your House re-envisions how we might understand space – and ultimately propels us to read more carefully between the lintels.
