Suspended Books

I wish I could find out more about this beautiful suspended book installation! I imagine walking under it would feel like walking on the bottom of a pond…with books up above instead of lilies. If you know where / what this is and who made it, please let us know via the comments.

    The installation pictured is by British artist Richard Wentworth – False Ceiling (1995–2005). It is a permanent piece cited in the Istanbul Modern, Turkey – just outside the museums library. It’s a beautiful work and well worth seeing for yourself!
