BOOKS by Brian Dettmer


March 4, 2011

Ladies and gentlemen, we at EMPTY KINGDOM apologize for the technical difficulties the past day and a half. For all the art junkies out there (like all of us here at the EK office), withdrawal symptoms may be intensely painful without your daily "medicine" and art fix. Thank the universe, we're back online (at least we didn't have another severe server crash like we did in 2009)! We were having our biannual EMPTY KINGDOM "Nerf-Death-Challenge," and suffice it to say, things got a little out of hand especially after several of our interns were maimed during a heated Nerf firefight that lasted through the night. I don't know who, but someone brought poison blow darts from South America...that escalated the battle into another level. Go figure. Brian Dettmer is an artist based in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, but originally hails from Chicago, Illinois. Dettmer creates highly detailed and intricate 3D sculptural pieces out of used books.
