5,000 Books Pour Out of a Window in Spain: Amazing, gravity-defying book sculptures by artist - Alicia Martin.
incredible art installation....found on George Strombo's page....in three different locations in Spain, artist Alicia Martin used massive cascades of books pouring out of windows...her works are called...'Biographias'...or Biographies...5,000 books are secured by wire and their pages allowed to move freely in the wind...extraordinary....
Cool art installation! "Artist Alicia Martin's latest exhibit seems to defy gravity: More than 5,000 books appear to pour out of windows around Spain, creating quite a spectacle for passers-by. The series, called Biografias, is in its third installation, most recently at Madrid's Casa de America."

Spanish installation artist Alicia Martin transforms thousands of old books into giant waterfalls which pour out the windows straight into the streets. Her massive installations have been installed in various places across Europe, however her recent series, known as Biografies, are based in her hometown, Madrid. These gravity-defying book sculptures were installed in the three of Madrid’s historic buildings, each installation consisting of approximately 5,000 books.
BOOK ART! Artist Alicia Martin's tornado of books shoot out a window like a burst of water from a giant hose. The Spain-based artist's sculptural installation at Casa de America, Madrid depicts a cavalcade of books streaming out of the side of a building. Known as Biografias, or Biographies, features approximately 5,000 books sprawled atop one another. By constructing the curving towers with a free and disheveled exterior, the books' loose pages are free to blow and rustle in the wind.
Books stream out a window like a burst of water from a giant hose. The sculptural installation, located at Casa de America, in Madrid, Spain, was created by artist Alicia Martin & features 5,000 books cascading out of the building. The gravity-defying ''literary'' sculpture is eye catching due to its enormous size. So far, there have been 3 site-specific installations of massive sculptural works in the series called Biografias. Each one contains approx 5,000 books artfully stacked or scattered.

Kansas City Public Library (Missouri, United States) "This project, located in the heart of Kansas City, represents one of the pioneer projects behind the revitalization of downtown. The people of Kansas City were asked to help pick highly influential books that represent Kansas City. Those titles were included as ‘bookbindings’ in the innovative design of the parking garage exterior, to inspire people to utilize the downtown Central Library."

"No, I don't think reading a book for the 5th time is stupid. It's awesome." :-D #books #reading #quote #saying #words
Well, yeah! A truly good book is one that, when you re-read it, reveals something new, something you didn't notice or realize the first time you read it. #reading #books
It gets better every time! It's not a good book unless you want to read it more than once!
I can read books over and over. That's why I have a hard time getting rid of good ones.
“No, I don’t think reading a book for the 5th time is stupid. It’s awesome.”
I love reading books over and over again. I just fall in love more!
