Incorporating hundreds of old and decommissioned library books and other tomes from his personal collection, New Mexico artist Todd Christensen exhibits a site-specific installation that responds to the historic architecture of the Southwest School of Art’s Urschel Gallery. Using charts and diagrams, family, food, education and Christensen’s passion for collecting, the works that comprise the installation draw from journal entries, childhood stories, and a nostalgia for a past that doesn’t exist, to reflect the artist’s view of the bombardment of visual images that we all face as we go about our daily lives.
