Student Jennifer Lee is conducting an experiment in the library. Take the back stairs (facing Bullock) and see for yourself. The ASC senior is doing the project for her ANTH/ART 250 class that focuses on the social uses of space.
In her project description, Jennifer notes, “For my project, I chose to explore plants and how they can be used to make an uncomfortable space into a more tranquil and inviting one. I also wanted to explore ways to encourage people to use the stairs more often.”
Jennifer will be adding to her broccoli display, so keep an eye out for the following:
Information and pictures on how the containers were built; how much it cost to build one container (it’s more affordable than you think); community message board for comments, suggestions, and questions; perhaps more research on topics related to this project.
Note: if you are a student who is doing an interesting project such as this one (it doesn’t even have to be located in the library). Let us know at email@example.com and we can feature your project here on the library blog!
