Transformed Volumes | Exhibition of Artist's Bookworks --- Introduced by Paul Forte | Numéro Cinq
The book is disappearing into the ether, becoming electrons assembled on screens, or maybe not --- you never know with books. The obituaries might be premature. But the mere threat of the disappearance of books has prompted a fascinating surge of art related to books, not images in books or book cover art, but books as objects converted into works of art. All of which connotes, yes, a vast nostalgia amongst thinking people for the book and a multimedia inquiry into the meaning of the book.
