Cara Barer Book Sculptures

Cara Barer transforms "books into art by sculpting them, dyeing them and then through the medium of photography presenting them anew as objects of beauty." She says some of her images come about by chance and others by experimenting, using old out-of-date books to give them a new purpose. She comments on the obsolescence of books and libraries in this digital age.
