A clever exhibition Carpe Librum ‘Seize the Book’ was part of the Word Festival. It’s on show at Ara Institute (formerly CPIT) Artbox in Madras Street until Friday. Some of the works by Ara students and staff were made from decommissioned books from Ara’s library.
Deborah Marshall, photography tutor, sent her book out and asked those who picked it up to take a photo of themselves with it, then pass it on.
Penny Jamieson made a beautiful new book in a clamshell box.
Carol King’s offering used a book called ‘The Utilisation of Wood Waste’ and included a toilet roll holder.
The bullets in Henry Sunderland’s work were labelled Google, Facebook, and YouTube.
“It’s good to go and have a look
see what they can do with a book.”
