I can think of some better uses for books (reading) yet I can also think of many books which should never be read and have no other foreseeable function other than as building materials or fuel (I’m going to let you come up with your own list, instead of inflicting mine upon you). This recent sculptural instillation by Colombian artist Miler Lagos is titled Home. The compact dome created by careful stacking is entirely self-supporting.
