Matej Kren's 'Idiom' Is a Spellbinding Tower Made From Hundreds of Books
Book Tower: The Prague Municipal Library is now home to a spiraling tower of hundreds of carefully stacked books assembled by Slovakian born artist Matej Kren. Dubbed Idiom, the staggering installation reaches up to the ceiling, and Kren installed a mirror inside the funnel to create the illusion of a magical, unending spire of books.
"Home" is a sculptural installation by Colombian artist Miler Lagos. The piece was constructed at MagnanMetz Gallery in 2011 using carefully stacked books to create a compact dome that is entirely self-supporting.
