Xu Bing



Is anyone familiar with a piece called "A Book from the
Sky" by Xu Bing which was displayed at the Elvehjem Museum of Art at the
University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1992(?). Loosely called a book, It is a
monumental piece
created from 4000 different carved wood block characters which resemble
classical Chinese characters, yet none of which is an actual character.

If anyone has any information about the piece or about other invented script
books, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
