This featured Scanner Book Cave by Slovakian artist Matej Krén is an elaborate structure, made mainly from books.

The cylindrical shaped book cave features arched ceilings, narrow corridors and strategically placed mirrors, creating interesting optical illusions, and therefore a more surreal experience.

The Scanner Book Cave now resides in the MAMbo (Museo d'Arte Morderna di Bologna) modern art museum in Italy.

Implications - This larger than life installation is truly mesmerizing. The viewer cannot help but wonder what books compose this mega structure. Almost like an immense bookshelf, the Scanner Book Cave can open a world of written wonders for any literary fan and art enthusiast. Artist Matej Krén has managed to capture audiences worldwide with this piece.
