Your House by Olafur Eliasson

I saw this book at the MOMA this summer and was amazed at the spatial qualities that Eliasson archived in a two-dimensional medium. check it out the next time your in New York.

Olafur Eliasson's Your House, is a hand-bound, laser cut book that renders the negative space of the artist's house at a scale of 85:1. The book features an exclusive production including a three month production set up and support of computer expert Georg Maria Sagurna to slice up a house in 454 detailed profiles.

Your House demonstrates how new technologies make it possible to rethink our daily products and breaks boundaries by bringing papermaking, paper cutting, laser technology and architecture together in a single book. The piece of paper art is manufactured by the Kremo laser cutting specialists and is commissioned by the The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
