Shannon Ebner's publication Auto Body Collision continues the artist’s ongoing investigation into the dialogue between word and image in a new series of more than 150 photographs that comprise a long-form poem. In this new series Ebner employs the automobile and automation as metaphor, meditating on the “collision” between bodies and machines. The book serves as a natural medium for Ebner's preoccupation with language, wordplay, and the contemporary economy of images. Auto Body Collision will also include essays by curators Alex Klein, Tina Kukielski, and designer Mark Owens.
