I came across Holly A. Senn‘s work while doing research paper on Installation Art for my Art History class. Usually the stuff I have to write about for my classes doesn’t relate much to this blog, but I was happy I came across something I could finally share on here too! My favorite installation of hers is Tale, which was displayed at 23 Sandy Gallery in Portland. The picture above is from an installation called Enchanted Forest of the Mind. Seriously best name ever.
Holly Senn is a sculpture and installation artist living in Tacoma, Washington. All of her works are created from discarded library books, so she explores the lifecycle of ideas and how they are generated, dispersed, referenced or forgotten.
As a lover of books, I feel bad for the old library books that had to suffer in the process, but the installations are absolutely beautiful, so it’s for a good cause.
