'Biografias' by Alicia Martin is a cascade of books that was created for the poetry festival Cosmopoetica in Molino San Antonio, Spain. Martin, a Spanish artist who often recycles old books to create artwork, used over 5,000 books to build this literary stream.

The installation projects over a small stream of water in the town, making Biografias by Alicia Martin a solid and formidable structure. The cascade of books shoot out from several windows like well-read torrents gushing forth for public consumption.
