The Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures, a Blue Star Museum that offers free admission to active-duty military and their family from Memorial Day-Labor Day, unveils Borrowed Time / Borrowed Books featuring six miniature libraries, constructed of steel, which were inspired by iconic libraries featured in the following classic films and shows: All the Presidents Men, Fahrenheit 451, Wings of Desire, The Time Machine, The Breakfast Club, and Time Enough at Last (Twilight Zone, season 1, episode 8).
The artist is Jill Orlov, a Baltimore-based architect-turned-miniature-metalsmith. Using off-the-shelf steel bars, strips, and tubes, Orlov cuts, welds, and shapes the steel to create these libraries from our cultural collective memory.
