This series is a comment on the way art is made in art schools across the world. The institution of the art-school is seminal both for the artist and for the production of art. I photograph empty classrooms within these institutions, spaces marked with the richness of the activity of art students, yet devoid of human presence. My images explore the nuances present in the art school system and encapsulate institutional architecture while remaining distinctly human spaces. The activities enacted in these spaces are premised on the balancing of individual versus collective experience, they question the traditional perception of the artist as an individual creator and focus on the collective aspect of the process of making art.
