SPONSORED POST When Remodelista's New York editors started working in a shared office space, they decided to give the neglected entry a much-needed makeover. For help, we summoned Johnne Eschleman, resident artist at the nearby Ace Hotel New York , whose specialty is turning discarded dictionaries, encylopedia, and other books into wallpaper. Eschelman, who is from Portland, Oregon, "has a good eye for straight lines and lyrics unfurling backwards," as the Ace Hotel says. For our entryway project, Eschleman repurposed a vintage illustrated dictionary with a broken spine and used a simple wheat paste to affix the pages to the wall, creating endless possibilities for perusing. "It's more interesting to me to create one-of-a-kind things that couldn't be anywhere else," he says. "I want to create art that people are engaged with all the time, and in the process, leave as small a footprint as possible." Watch Johnne in action below (and see the finished results) in the video "Finding Beauty in Everyday Objects for the Future."
