Item description for Mario Sala: The Building by Simon Maurer...
For an exhibition at Helmhaus Zrich, Swiss artist Mario Sala created a walk-through, slide-projected narrative with the museum itself as the setting. Using 270 slides he took of the structure, he manipulated the images under a stereo microscope using scalpels and toothpicks, watercolors, colored foil, and adhesive. This book, a bibliophile's dream by award-winning Zrich graphic-design duo NORM, makes the haunting photographs shine.
