Singer’s work can be viewed as a way of re-imagining the material life of books, words, and literature. Through patience and meticulousness, he cuts and assembles the pages of books to create geometric and symmetrical patterns. The result is a visual language that evokes a different type of reading and legibility.
On display at the 1888 Center from August 30, 2018 through October 31, 2018
