Book of Iterations: An exhibit by Pippa Skotnes is comprised of two "bone books" made of horse skeletons and covered in hand-written texts, burnished in gold leaf and shod in silver shoes. Through themes of sacrifice and redemption, the artist explores relic and archive in the context of writing and language, and considers the interchange between text and textuality, the visible and the invisible world. The exhibit is through Jan. 22 at the Institute for the Humanities Gallery, Room 100, 202 S. Thayer. (Photo by Pippa Skotnes)
