Cutting Words

"He walks into a local Borders or Barnes & Noble and buys some great books. He takes them home and slices them with a band saw or cuts craters into them with a 6-inch grinder. Then he returns to the store and places them back on the shelves. At 23, Miroslav Cukovic is one of the city's most intriguing young artists because his work really pushes for immediate engagement with the public."

The man takes a pair of scissors to a book, cuts out phrases at random and is lauded for it? One isn't letting him get anywhere near one's bookshelves, that's for sure.
