A Detailed House Carved Into The Pages Of A Book

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson’s talent doesn’t just lie in creating the large-scale installation art pieces that he is known for—he can create incredibly intricate works on a much smaller-scale as well.

‘Your House’ is an unassuming hardcover book that opens to reveal layer upon layer of cutouts that emulate the cross-section of the artist’s Copenhagen house.

The amount of detail worked into each nook and cranny is staggering—every tiny window and stair is carefully eked out of the 454 blank pages.
