Your House.

About

ELIASSON, Olafur. Your House. 908 pp. Illustrated by Olafur Eliasson using computer-aided laser die-cuts. Oblong folio, 285 x 440 mm, bound in original cloth. New York: Library Council of the Museum of Modern Art, 2006. Conceived by Olafur Eliasson as part of the Contem-porary Editions series at the Museum of Modern Art, this book is one of the more exciting new achievements in book making in the 21st Century. The subject of the book is Eliasson's house in Denmark that is rendered in a vertical cross section through an elaborate laser die-cut process of each page. The format of the book allows Eliasson the space to fully realize his idea on a scale of 85:1, so that each leaf corresponds to 2.2 centimeters of the actual house. Eliasson summarizes the experience of viewing this book, "Reading a book is both a physical and a mental activity. It is like walking through a house, following the layout of the rooms with your body and mind: the movement from one room to another, or from one part of the book to another, constitutes an experiential narrative that is physical and conscious at the same time." Signed by Eliasson on the colophon. One of an edition of 225 copies. Condition is as new. Despite its recent publication date, the book is extremely rare to find on the market.
