Next up in our Artist Profile series is Michael Cappabianca, one of the Mass Cultural Council’s Photography Fellowship awardees who will be showing his work at the upcoming exhibition at the The New Art Center in Newton, MA.
The Material is a series about the interaction with the physical world of books. It takes no feat of the imagination to speculate on the role of the printed book in the future.
I found it an important time to investigate the physicality of the boards and bindings of the insignificant as well as the culturally relevant. The arrangements reflect an organization, a mode of ordering within the structure of the interior space.
How we think about the material world of books relates to the ways we read them. As we forge ahead into the virtual, how will our necessary conditions for understanding change with how we acquire information?
