Obtainium is a catalog designed for the exhibition of the photographer Nicola Carignani. This term is widely used among the residents of Joshua Tree in California where the photos where taken. The term indicates materials used to create art work such as assemblage, mixed media or sculpture that aren’t bought new. These materials are obtained by second hand, dumpster diving, chance findings or donations. To convey this idea the print run has 7 different covers, all of them upholstered with random cardboard or canvas recovered by the printer’s warehouse.
