Photo artist Cara Barer experiments with curling irons, clothes pins and water to transform discarded books into coiled, crumpled objects of beauty. She says her photographs “are primarily a documentation of a physical evolution . . . The way we choose to research and find information is also in an evolution.”
“Barer visually documents the way in which society has come to retrieve information by changing a common reference book into a work of sculpture and photographing the outcome.” -Exhibition notes from Bau-Xi Photo in Toronto
