Rob Halverson’s curated room at the Corberry Press definitely warrants a studied viewing. The collection of objects in a small office space self-reference their hand-made qualities to the point of absurd (i.e. a cell phone rock pet). The works are a testament to wonderful crumminess, beautiful roughness and the potential complexity of simple shapes and designs. There is a lot of information in this tiny space and if anything the size of the room limits occupancy, and that is a plus, each item requires an intimate interaction, the kind of interaction distracted by large crowds. The overall impression is of insight into obsessive machinations of tactile oriented folk.
