anatomy UK

Chicago born artist Brian Dettmer meticulously dissects books using knives, tweezers and surgical tools. Each piece only reveals what was inside, nothing is added, only removed to reveal the life inside the medical books he used for these two pieces above.

There’s a great interview with him here.
