A house made of books
"Scanner" by Matej Krén was specifically created for the Museo d'Arte Moderna ai Bologna. Throughout his career, Krén has focused mainly on the means of elaboration and transmission of knowledge, establishing suggestive links between their historical and ideological relativity and the experimentation with many forms of optical and perceptual illusion.
This "house" was made of books because they are symbols of intrinsically human free thought, books are here “used” as raw materials for an artistic process existing and communicating on many distinct levels.
