Krista Wortendyke & Senn High School

Project Overview

As the coordinator for a CPS fine and performing arts magnet program, I find myself in my school building at hours when others are not. The quiet hallways, classrooms, closets, and corners reveal arrangements left behind by unsuspecting artists that take on new interest when they are removed from the context of the bustle of the day and the din of teenagers. Past and present are in constant collision creating over a century of layers of old and new.  My images explore the history and personality of the school, the building structure, and the people who exist inside of it through the odd, funny, and strangely beautiful arrangements of objects that I find.
