Books Pour Out

Is this art or not? In Madrid, artist Alicia Martin created a tornado of books falling out of a building called Biografias (Biographies).

Using more than 5000 books seems like a little bit of an extreme to me, considering she’s done three of these installations now, but hopefully, they were discards.  It is interesting, I’ll give her that, and the structure to make these books “fall” is probably quite impressive. You can see more of her book art below.
