The Living Book

One thing I love to do is collaborate with creative people on exhibits. For the Library Company’s most recent exhibition, The Living Book : New Perspectives on Form and Function, I was given a chance to stretch my creative muscles and really bring these books to life in the Library’s first film installation on display in the main gallery. In this reel, you’ll see books that transform, books that transport, and books that surprise. It shows that a book is more than something we read, but also a playful object, a record, a tool, or a keepsake.

The Living Book, curated by Jennifer Rosner, Andrea Krupp, and Alice Austin is now open through January 5, 2018 at The Library Company of Philadelphia. To check out more about the exhibit please visit thelivingbook.librarycompany.org.

This film is a collection of stop motion animation and videos I created to highlight rare book materials from The Library Company.

Hydepark and a new look

 

2015-05-07-hydepark-001When in London last year we took a walk in Hydepark and came across a lot of official looking horses running in formation, riders too, but I focused on the horses. I was lucky to get a couple shots, and they are some of my favorites from the trip.

In other news, cmbarbera.wordpress.com has a new look! I thought this was a more intuitive way to access my portfolio, and I love the simplicity. You can find this image and more from the UK trip altogether now here. More soon…
