Book Igloo Held Together By Natural Forces And Knowledge

Colombian artist Miler Lagos has been exhibiting since 2002, creating original works like this igloo-resembling installation made of volumes salvaged from the library of a US Navy base. Encompassing knowledge and mind adventure while the body remains under a comfortable, predator-free structure, this installation entitled “Home” was constructed at the MagnanMetz Gallery last year. The artist imagined a 9 foot igloo made of books that would rise without being forced to remain together by any kind of glue, but naturally relying on each other to shape the desired structure. Pages face outwards to shape a color-white-color dynamic, while the spines showing titles of the salvaged books face inward. Missing almost half of the structure, the dome-like book stack substitutes bricks for books, showing a work in progress captured in a moment of time. This compact display found on This is Colossal inspires the thirst for knowledge and the self-made chance to apply that found knowledge.

    I don’t comment, however after browsing through some of the responses on Book Igloo Held Together By Natural Forces And Knowledge. I actually do have a few questions for you if you do not mind. Is it just me or do some of these comments appear like they are written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other online sites, I would like to follow you. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your social pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
