This is a really cool program hosted by the library! Artists VET and Sheila Cunningham come together to showcase the power of books by contemplating the transitional phases of paper and re-imaging the book as an art object. VET and Sheila’s installation references a forest of altered books that have been folded, manipulated and stacked to mimic trees, plants and ground cover. A maze of books covers the floor leading to shredded paper contained in glass symbolizing the life cycle of books.
