Brian Dettmer – THE BOOK SURGEON

SHAPE SHIFTER , PAPER SHAPER are few keywords for this artist.

Reading  through the knife and carving as intangible routes thrive discovering quicker fluidity, material and history by eroding into the ether. It is complicated but Beautiful process to travel through.

The book’s intended function has decreased and the form remains linear in a non-linear world. But by altering physical forms of information and shifting preconceived functions, new and unexpected roles emerge. This is the area Brian currently operates in.  He is an American artist and has become a popular contemporary artist through Internet. He can also be called as the ” Paper Shaper ” . He edits,  dissect all communicative objects such as books, maps, tapes and other media and transforms its content to new meanings or interpretations.

Physical and tangible quality of the book is maintained with high level of data being shaped into physical art is indeed a great work .
