Kara Hammond, "Remember These Things" exhibition

Combining original drawings and quotes with historical prints and appropriated photographs on a backdrop of dictionary wallpaper, Kara Hammond’s installation, “Remember These Things”, is a response to the ongoing revolution in information technology. Exploring ideas about the meaning of libraries in relation to knowledge, the work juxtaposes ink wash images of hard boiled detectives “seeking information” with photographs of information storage from the past to the present.
