Book Sculptures + Photography, by Cara Barer

Cara Barer describes her work: “I realized I owned many books that were no longer of use to me, or for that matter, anyone else. Would I ever need “Windows 95?” After soaking it in the bathtub for a few hours, it had a new shape and purpose… Each book tells me how to begin according to its size, type of paper, and sometimes contents.”

Be sure to check out Barer’s website, http://www.carabarer.com/, as well as her blogs.
