Opening Reception: Fossils from Gutenberg Era
Artist Ignacio Asenjo Salcedo imagines a world several centuries into the future in which paper books are no longer a traditional means of entertaining or sharing information, but relics of a bygone era in world that has become all digital. An art teacher based in Madrid, Asenjo Salcedo uses sculpture to approximate what paper books might look like in their fossilized form in this civilization.
