Inspired in part by Jorge Luis Borges’s contention that a book is “an axis of innumerable relationships”, Jenn Law examines print culture, bibliophilia, and textuality through the close material readings of several key texts. Working with hand-cut and altered found books, 3-D printed objects and traditional print processes, Law engages evolving technologies as the means by which we continuously reinvent ourselves. In the face of contemporary debates surrounding the purported crisis in print culture, she contemplates the future of the book, our fetishization and attachment to its physical object-form, and our desire to collect and possess the knowledge contained therein.
