Summary
"In "Expired," each picture serves as an homage to the book?s history, etched onto the pages by way of marginalia, a yellowed coffee splatter, or sticky peanut-butter-and-jelly fingerprints. It's easy to feel a sense of abuse and loss, but these books say much more. They show the evidence of everyone that has touched them, because they were well read, and well loved. They were not left on shelves, untouched. Now they have a new life, as portraits or records of the shared experience unique to the library book. We must take time to celebrate the swiftly disappearing communal experience offered by library books as they are being replaced by downloads, finger swipes, and plastic newness. If you listen carefully, you can hear the aching poetry--the burden of the years that calls from their tattered pages."--Artist's website.
