A Single Book Can Alter The Strongest Of Foundations

Installation artist Jorge Mendez Blake creates a powerful brick sculpture titled “The Castle”. The intimidating wall, formidable and erect, loses its symmetry and forms a rift at the point where a book it inserted at its root.

The potent power of knowledge, held in books, can fracture even the backbone of a monument if it’s foundation is formed from it. The brick wall signifies an obstacle against knowledge, the symmetry of its aligned bricks representing the faultless and exemplary laws, rules and regulations that at once come undone at the hands of a book.
