Nook: Book of Space


Book of Space

We're dazzled by this brilliant idea to literally depict rooms in time & space. The rooms in the 'Book of Space' are based on the very ornate architecture of the Winter Palace in St. Petersburg. The piece was made by Johan Hybschmann, a recent graduate of the Bartlett School of Architecture.

From Bldg Blog:

What you're looking at in the images reproduced here... are painstakingly precise laser-cuts made into the pages of a blank sketchbook. As the book is opened and its pages begin to turn, these cuts work together to form a spatial representation of the single, highly choreographed 90-minute shot that is Alexander Sokurov's film Russian Ark.

The book's "content" is thus a three-dimensional, perspectivally accurate space.
