Brian Dettmer- a Decade of turning Book Surgery into Art

The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time. The book’s intended function has decreased and the form remains linear in a non-linear world. By altering physical forms of information and shifting preconceived functions, new and unexpected roles emerge. This is the area I currently operate in. Through meticulous excavation or concise alteration I edit or dissect communicative objects or systems such as books, maps, tapes and other media. The medium’s role transforms. Its content is recontextualized and new meanings or interpretations emerge.

Esther Stocker was born in Silandro, Italy 1974, studied in Milan and Pasadena before moving to Vienna, where she now lives. Stocker has shown her minimalist, monochrome paintings and trippy 3-D installations at prestigious galleries across the globe. Her artworks based on grid structures and on the colors black, white and gray.

I’m quite interested in structures that are ordered and disordered at the same time – the idea that parts of a structure can become autonomous. In some ways the work is quite minimal and simple, but I think there’s complexity within the grid – a transformation within a repetitive structure. And I think this relates to office life: There is routine, but within that, individuality.

Feliks Tomasz Konczakowski was born in 1982 in Kraków, Poland. He began uploading his work on Tumblr in April as konczakowski. He is obsessed with repetition, mirrors, self reference, emulation, time, subversion, decadence, memories and loss. He began working with Photoshop 5 years ago but only learned how to save a GIF this April.
