Check Out the Amazing Book Sculptures Meant to Show 'Erosion of Cultures

"ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation"

Guy Laramee has chosen an unusual medium for his sculpting. Laramee sculpts intricate landscapes in books, which when you consider his artist's statement that "ultimate knowledge could very well be an erosion instead of an accumulation" is a fitting material choice.

GeekOSystem describes Laramee's work as a "better way to destroy a book than burning it":

Generally imitating some type of landscape, each piece is extremely detailed, and mighty impressive, not only showing off intricate terrain, but employing lighting effects from outside sources.

Laramee says on his website that he has been practicing for 30 years. In his biography, it states that his work began appearing in galleries around 2004, but as of 2011 he had 15 solo and 20 collective shows of his art. Laramee says in his artist's statement that the theme of his work for the past 25 years has been "the erosion of cultures – and of 'cultures' as a whole", which hopes will  "project us into this thick Cloud of Unknowing."
