Working with knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Atlanta-based artist Brian Dettmer carves one page of a book at a time, exposing each layer while cutting around ideas and images of interest. Nothing inside the books is relocated or implanted, only removed. The image and ideas that he reveals are used to expose alternate histories and memories.

Brian Dettmer, whose book sculptures we have shown you in the past, also has a series of human and animal skulls constructed from melted casette tapes. Brian heated up the plastic tapes so he could weld and mold them together with his hands and other tools.

A long week of art happenings has just concluded in NYC, with The Armory Show being at centerstage. But take a cab ride down to SoHo, and you found yourself at Volta NY, a fair that focused on solo projects from artists represented by galleries from around the world.

Brian Dettmer has recently focused on altering books into unique sculptural art objects, but he has in the past altered cassette tapes into a skeleton, and turned a typical road map into a human head. Starting on September 8, 2011, he will be showing at London's Black Rat Projects.
