Matthew Picton sculpts cities from books and materials related to that city. Jerusalem was built from the New Testament, Torah, Koran, and the Armenian Bible. Dresden is made up from a score from Wagner.

If you were to create a sculpture of your city, what would you make it out of? I’d make Brooklyn out of thousands of ironic mustaches and tiny ugly sweaters.
