Brian Dettmer’s book autopsies

Brian Dettmer studied art (painting) at Colombia College, where whilst working at a signage store he started exploring the relationship between code and art. Creating paintings based on Braille and Morse Code, he then moved on to layered works that involved pasting newspaper and book pages to a canvas. Nowadays he uses knives and surgical tools to carefully carve one page at a time, a painstakingly detailed task with amazing results.
