Graduate students Leslie Grant (RIT) and Alex Terzich (University of Minnesota, Twin Cities) collaborated on the production of a small book of photographs, a proposed atlas, and an architectural intervention focusing on salt mining in Livingston County, New York. Their work was based on interdisciplinary research, the interdependence of theory and practice, and an acknowledgment of the viewer as key to meaning production in art and architecture. Grant's work describes the overall scope of the thesis work, and concentrates on her work on the book of photography.
