348 culturedmag.com Page Turner For this issue's Cultured Commission, we asked four artists working on Miami's Underline to create an editioned piece in dialogue with their public project. Here, Bhakti Baxter shares his Book Knob, created exclusively for Cultured. To read more about this exclusive collaboration, and to view the work of the three other artists—Naomi Fisher, Nick Lobo and Agustina Woodgate—who have created Cultured Commissions this issue, visit culturedmag.com. Bhakti Baxter's Book Knob (Miami: City Of The Future), 2016, $1,200, is an edition of five unique pieces, and is available exclusively on artsy.net/culturedmagazine. "There are a few contradictions at play here. We have the symbol of the doorknob, which is meant to open and close, but in this case seals the book shut. And the book itself, about Miami in the future, was written in the '80s. We have all these ideas of Miami being a city of the future, but here we are in 2016 and the transportation is still lacking." —Bhakti Baxter #CULTUREDCOMMISSION
