VISUAL ART

Bygone books

Is the age of books over thanks to Twitter and the iPad? This is the question that local artist Hilde Festerling explores in her latest work, art pieces she calls “book remixes.”

“Like in a remix of, say, a Beyonce song, you always hear Beyonce’s voice, strong on top of the mix. But the new background, new images, and new speed create a new effect,” said Festerling in a release. “The book remix idea takes a book and draws a few passages from it – perhaps one per cent of the total text – and reworks those selections in a new style, with new images. The identity of the original book remains strong, but through the remix a new context and a new flow re-imagine the work of the original author.”

Hilde Festerling’s work will be available to view and acquire at the Twelve Days of Christmas Craft Fair (see above). For more info contact Festerling at 668-3736.
