Time Out says

"Detour" is a new exhibit showcasing Moleskine notebooks that have been transformed into works of art by 75 different creatives.

According to an official press release, the exhibition—set to take over One World Observatory atop One World Trade Center starting May 13 through May 22—"celebrates how blank pages, traditionally a tool for personal creativity, can become a work of art in [and of] themselves, providing powerful moments of both inspiration and introspection for the thousands of visitors who visit the landmark each day."

In addition to the various creatives, expect to browse through notebooks belonging to 18-to-27-year-olds from Africa, Europe and the United States  and those of New York-based artists.

The show will be divided into five different themes: metamorphosis, memory, borders, journey and imagination. 

Given the instant recognizability of the notebooks, seeing them transformed into something completely different is sure to be a memorable experience.
