"Mexican mixed media artist Jorge Méndez Blake transforms literature into sculpture with his installation art, titled The Castle.

As the eye moves down from the arched top, the viewer can see the culprit is a single book. Lodged in the mortarless wall’s foundation, between the floor and the first layer of bricks, is a copy of Franz Kafka’s The Castle. With an architectural background and a life-long of love of books, Blake pays homage to Kafka by placing his novel at the base, so that it inflects the monumental red-brick structure.
