About the show:
This exhibition will look at the influence of the office aesthetic in independent publishing. The works selected for this show are either made with office materials, or reference the work environment in a pertinent way. These artists have used materials developed for the workplace to craft deliberate hand made books. As the office space becomes increasingly efficient, these artists address the relics of office production: the fax machine, the dot matrix printer, even the file folder.
