At a first glance you might not notice, but those are actually books down there. Some were soaked in a bathtub, some just aged correctly and to some, horrible things were done. However, no important books were used as subjects in Cara Barer‘s sculpting/photography project. One of the books below is “Houston yellow pages” and another is “Windows 95″ – hardly to be missed by anyone. Though the books shown might seem somewhat discomforted, they are imbued by the artist with a new life and purpose – a gift we know they’d appreciate, if they only could. We, however, wishing them only the best, can and do.
