We asked SVA students and faculty to send in work they were creating over the summer. Below is one in an occasional series of Summer Session posts.
BFA Photography Department faculty member Abby Robinson sent in images from Home/Body Imaging, a project she participated in over the summer for HomeBase, a multi-disciplinary public art project. Robinson describes Home/Body Imaging as, “a mash-up of a doctor’s office and photo studio,” wherein she set up in a vacant medical clinic on Manhattan’s Lower East side and “examined” participants by photographing body parts at close range. She then printed out the digital image and gave each participant a wearable “badge” of their own photo. Below are samples of images from the project:
