Paper Architecture (2017)
Karen Wirth
H230 x W130mm, 24 pages
Acquired from Journal of Artists’ Books 42 (Fall 2017)

Photographic images by Karen Wirth from Ayvalik, Amsterdam, Florence, Istanbul, New York City, Rome, San Diego and Venice. The photos are collaged, and the work is based on an architectural installation at the Minnesota College for Art and Design that included a large-scale book.

Architecture plays more than an inspirational role in Karen Wirth’s portfolio. She has designed the Gail See Staircase at Open Book and stations for the Hiawatha Light Rail, both in Minneapolis.
