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.[see_also]
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.
