Academia: Interior Landscapes documents the classrooms, museum collections and in-between spaces of universities throughout the United States and Western Europe. Inside the centuries old buildings, I see the juxtaposition of the ancient and contemporary. Today’s students, characterized by their multi-ethnic gender-fluid makeup, their informal attitudes and attire, and their hi-tech adornments, live and work in university spaces imbued with formality, under the gaze of portraits of mono-ethnic men, in rooms designed for students using pen and ink. The photographs reflect the remnants of the people who have inhabited these spaces, both past and present. The design of each room, the furniture left behind, and the curated collections speak about those who have passed before me.
