Opening Reception, Friday March 10th, 2023
WNY Book Arts Center is pleased to present Programmed Paper, an exhibition featuring work created by artist and Media Study Visiting Assistant Professor Christina Corfield as part of Book Arts’ 2023 Studio Artist Residency program. Corfield is an artist and media scholar whose work turns to older and more analog forms of media to push against the fetishizing of new technologies. Her media archeology projects present histories of media and technology that bring together and overlay old and new forms, asking us to think about the way those forms shape our thinking around the technologies we rely on every day. She is especially interested in how we build relationships to new technologies through our interactions with analog media, including paper.
