Tunnel Vision

Tunnel books derive from the traveling peep shows of the 19th century. Tunnel Vision features a selection of pieces from the rare book collections produced using various paper manipulations to create the illusion of depth — framing and narrowing the viewers’ perspective. This exhibition is the result of a collaboration between the Book Arts Program, the Utah Museum of Fine Arts, and the Rare Books Department. It coincides with two events inspired by Nancy Holt’s famous land art piece, Sun Tunnels, located in Utah’s west desert.
