Cara Barer

Cara Barer photographs outdated, abandoned, and obsolete books— but only after transforming them into sculptural objects.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.
