Artist Turns Old Books Into Unique Pieces Of Gorgeous Wall Art
To give old books “another chance to tell a story”, artist Keri Muller transformed them into imaginative artworks and installations that often involve crafting them into origami-inspired shapes.
While Muller has also created smaller pieces of book art featuring rolled-up or cut-up pages, it is her larger wall art made of several books that caught our eyes—recently, she made a piece named “Forests of the Future” for TEDx Cape Town.
Working with the existing structure of the book, she turns what is normally perceived to be rubbish into thought-provoking art—some of her installations resemble strange paper animal taxidermy.
