An installation by renowned artist Do Ho Suh - consisting of thousands of miniature plastic figurines holding up glass plates the visitors can stand on. (Installation at Lehmann Maupin Gallery, New York)
Phonebook carvings by Cuban artist Alex Queral. Finally, somebody put phonebooks to good use.
Taking an ordinary phone book, Alex Queral carves a face into this object of so many faceless names. With the book, a very sharp X-ACTO® knife, a little pot of acrylic medium to set detail areas and a great deal of talent, Queral literally peels away the pages like the skin of an onion to reveal the portrait within.
