Donald Trump’s Star on the Hollywood “Walk of Fame” is a touchstone. If you stand there for a few minutes you will see one person express deep contempt for our 45th president, and 21 seconds later another will express love. This signifier is as close as most people can get to expressing themselves to the 45th president. In a series of 52 weekly photography visits, I document the state of the star and whatever people happen to be doing there that day.
Runaway University Los Angeles (RULA) is an alternative, unaccredited, international university operated out of my home. RULA has been a laboratory for understanding that a different college experience is possible. A bottom-up college experience where motivated students pursue knowledge, instead of a top-down experience where faculty preach to lethargic supplicants.
