If Money Weren't an Issue . . .

. . . would you hang this new work by Tel Aviv native and artist Ron Arad in your home? "Oh, the farmer & the cowman should be friends" will soon be on exhibit at the Timothy Taylor Gallery in London. It's made of stainless and Cor-Ten steel and forms the shape of the United States — if you hadn't noticed.Source

OMG I just realized that I said Pollock when I should have said Jasper Johns. I'm a very, very bad arteest.

this is pretty ace. definitely would need a very big house with very tall ceilings. you could use it for other things not just books.

This is awesome! I would organize it by putting author's in their home states!

I LOVE THIS!!! Jackson Pollock is one of my favorite artists, and I've done a lot of work myself with patriotism & what it means to be American. I'd put this in my home in a second if I could afford it.

Hmmm...maybe if I was more eclectic...and if it came in shapes from other countries (like the one where I live).

I would so be able to organize my books in this! Novels in California, art books in Texas, the bf's in Pennsylvania...

I think it's awesome! Don't think I'd put books in it though.

My house is very modern and could sustain this piece. I just don't think I would want my books jumbled like that.

If this was a World Map I would totally go for it. A World Map one of these would be awesome.

NO. I have zero America pride so I wouldn't do it.

I think it's a really cool statement piece, but I'm with allthingsgrow: you'd need a BIG HOSUE for this !

That is pretty amazing! Though I wish it had mini-shelves so everything in each state cubby isn't so hard to get to... Actually, I'd be happy if it was a really really big one of my home state, Texas. It's distinctive enough for it to still be interesting, and I could find a way to make it work wherever I live! :D

It's freaking cool but I wouldn't put it up unless I had a huge house...

* brilliant & quite cool looking...

Maybe. This is not a piece I would imagine in my home however it is brilliant quite cool looking. I can visualize this is a cozy den/living space for all to enjoy. Though I have to wonder, what would you store in Rhode Island? A pen? :? ,lol.

No.. but I'm not an American so maybe that's why. Though I wouldn't want one shaped like Canada either.
