SHOW STATEMENT - MEDITATIONS: Meditations features the photographs of Cara Barer. "My photographs are primarily a documentation of a physical evolution. I have changed a common object into sculpture in a state of flux. The way we choose to research and find information is also in an evolution. I hope to raise questions about these changes, the ephemeral and fragile nature in which we now obtain knowledge, and the future of books. I am attempting to blur the line between objects, sculpture, and photography."
