You can usually find Flounder Lee, an assistant professor of photography at IUPUI's Herron School of Art and Design, somewhere around town, either in a classroom or the gallery he co-founded, SpaceCamp MicroGallery. But Lee periodically takes trips far afield — from Alaska to Northern Europe and beyond — to explore the borders that divide nations and peoples from one another.
Paper maps are becoming increasingly irrelevant due to the rise of affordable GPS technology, but they remain a source of inspiration for certain artists. The exhibit is a great introduction to a small genre of art-making that tries to make sense of our increasingly crowded global village.

In this exhibition the object of affection takes the form of a book -- individual artist’s interpretation of “love” concealed and superficially homogenized as romance novels. The installation can employ the basic structure of a bookstore or library. The space has shelves containing the fabricated romance novels with each visually uniform title presented on the shelves and accessible to the viewer. Lounging chairs or sofas are available to encourage individuals to comfortably sit, read and become more active participants. Unable to judge the books by their covers, the viewer has have the opportunity to scroll through titles and authors (artists) choose a book and engage with the actual content.
