Display Book Shelf
MDF shelf, 6 feet long, 1 foot wide, 3/4 inch thick, resting on two metal brackets displaying books borrowed from Belk Library. The shelf sags under the weight of its contents in a graceful arc, the top edges of all the books are perfectly flush as a result of a conscious selection of volumes chosen to accommodate (or compensate for) the arc of the sagging shelf.

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
