Jessie Wender from The New Yorker writes in Photo Booth:

The recent NY Art Book Fair, and this week’s Fall Books issue of the magazine, had me thinking about the ways artists use books. “This image is from my series ‘The City,’ where I show various buildings and institutions, abandoned by mankind, being reclaimed by nature,” Nix told me. “Not wanting to re-create a specific place, I drew on the elements I loved from various locations to create someplace imaginary, but also familiar. Warm wood trim, heavy desks, soaring spaces and oddly curious displays all combine to tickle at a memory that is just out of reach, under a thin layer of dust, saying, ‘I think I’ve been there before.’”
