Medium: Cyanotype

This piece deals with heterotopias through an architectural lens by focusing on the buildings of Pomona College. I explore Foucault’s definition of a heterotopia as a single space where several otherwise incompatible spaces are juxtaposed, by illustrating the coexistence of Pomona’s varied architecture that ranges from Spanish Colonial Revival to Brutalism. The medium of the piece, cyanotype, which is also associated with architectural blueprints, further lays emphasis on the role architecture plays in casting the College as a heterotopia.
