School book

Found school desk, photobook with inserts


This piece deconstructs the private Christian school I attended as a child in rural

Kansas. The book is composed of archived photographs and scans from PACE

(Packet of Accelerated Christian Education) booklets that I primarily learned

through, and photographs that were taken of the space in the fall of 2018. The

book is also formatted to include inserts including three double-spaced “essays”

reflecting on my experience there, written on notebook paper in cursive. The

desk fulfills its purpose by allowing the viewer to sit in it and be educated by

School book and my experience as a young person in this religious school.
