For the projected slides, window collages and discreet bundles weighed out on a scale and placed on metal shelves, a sampling of microfiche was selected from salvaged materials collected during a 2018 libricide of 160 boxes of microfiche and microfilm at Fairfield University.  The journals scanned on mcrofiche include the Hispanic Journal of Behavioral SciencesGifted Child TodayEducation and Urban SocietyEducation Administration QuarterlyEnvironment and Behavior; and Crime and Delinquency

The installation, a collaboration by sound artist and Fairfield alumnus, Nick Shifrin and interdisciplinary artist and Fairfield Professor Jo Yarrington offer a room in which to reflect on the weight of knowledge and the marketing of academics.
