Books and other inanimate, abstract objects have always been a popular inspiration for modern visual arts. The link above shows us a splendid piece of sculptural setup by Spain-based artist Alicia Martin. Here she has used books to create a seeming water fountain of books that is draining from a structure. The grand size of the entire thing is amazing , and each of the three installations has around 5000 books draining, one book on top of the other. Likewise, the pages of the books have actually been left complimentary to flutter in the wind, which adds life to the inanimate things used in the work.
So start looking for Spain sculptures right now.
