Brian Dettmer is a Fantastical Creator
While letting time escape as I perused the vortex that is the web I encountered pictures from the Haydee Rovirosa Gallery of an artists that alters books. Brian Dettmer takes old books and creates insanely detailed dioramas from cut away sheets. This fascinated me as I’ve been thinking about tessellating old books and/or making new ones with embedded tessellations. This gentleman is meticulous and creates a vision of the text in layers that harmonize and call out to be analyzed and appreciated. Like many things I post about I advocate checking out the gallery that has this gentlemans work and if feasible purchase one of his fantastical journeys.
