Disheveled Book Art
The Forests of the Future Uses Old, Hoarded Books to Create Art

{SummaryTitle}

By removing the back binding from books, artist Keri Muller unfastens old books and gives them a new lease on life in her wall art series titled, ‘Forests of the Future.’

Made of abandoned objects and “hoarded” books, both new and old, Muller creates a remarkable collection of art by folding and sticking together one side of pages to the other, while others are cut up or unfurled to create a dizzying spectacle that, when viewed from above, look like circular handheld fans. Some of her works from Forests of the Future, when stacked and layered on top of each other, create magnificent hues of white, black and aged brown to produce works such as the continent of Africa, a bird, an antelope and other abstract, thought-provoking pieces.
