Book Sculptures by Barbara Wildenboer

South African artist Barbara Wildenboer produces these delicate cut books for her ongoing project 'Library of the Infinitesimally Small and Unimaginably Large'.

"The books become both reference and raw material for sculptures, paper installations and digital animation. The books, sentences, words and letters become elements of a new visual narrative in which the old and new forms co-exist. Through the act of altering books and other paper based objects the intention is to draw emphasis to our understanding of history as mediated through text or language and our understanding of the abstract terms of science through metaphor."

Her artworks reminds me of Georgia Russell's artworks here.
