Change, the first volume of The Gould Collection, interweaves Stephen Dixon’s short story Change with Mikiko Hara’s untitled photographs from 1996 to 2009.
Isolation and social disconnect define both Dixon’s story and Hara’s photographs. Whether images of a bored mother and child on a Tokyo subway or dialogue that reveals missed social cues between neighbors, the people who inhabit the pages of Change try and often fail to genuinely interact with one another. Visually united through an inventive design that presents Dixon’s story on iridescent sheets interspersed between Hara’s color images, Change probes alienation and its role in contemporary life.
