CARA BARER

BOOKS 2014–2015

Cara Barer photographs outdated, abandoned and obsolete books – but only after transforming them into sculptural objects. Coiled and crumpled, they segue into a considered commentary on the changing role of libraries, society's relationship with how it accesses and values knowledge, and in a technologically advanced world, her work questions the future of the book itself.
