The five Miami artists in this exhibition have adapted work for the Miami Beach Regional Library using processes that, like library cataloging, identify and re-process information that has already been codified or mediated. Using photographs, prints, video, altered film, and hand-dyed and embroidered fabric, they bring viewers into a new relationship with words and images from the news, philosophical ideas, reproductions of art historical works from fine art books, the natural environment as organized into civic parks, and an absent character re-invented through a series of videotaped interviews.
