and the curtains shone brightly

This is an image of Jonathan Safran Foer’s new book, Tree of Codes, where he has taken Bruno Schulz’s The Street of Crocodiles and created an entire new narrative within the existing text by cutting it away.  The result is a combination of story and sculpture.  This is a beautiful idea and has been carried out in conjunction with one of my favourite artists, Olafur Eliasson.  It is not cheap, but that doesn’t make me want it any less.
