    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.

    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 Martin’s most recent series, known as Biografies, are based in her hometown, Madrid. These gravity-defying book sculptures from her Biografies series were installed in the three of Madrid’s historic buildings, each installation consisting of approximately 5,000 books.

    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."
