In BUS: A Teacher in Transit Smith College visiting professor and Joan Leiman Jacobson Writer-in-Residence Russ Rymer presents an essay in photographs and wall text about the nature of reality and perception, and the conjoined arts of science and writing – all told through Rymer’s experience commuting to Northampton on the intercity bus. The ten images in the show, shot with a rudimentary camera during those commutes and blown up to enormous size, capture the magical light show infusing his bus rides, rides Rymer likens to “blasting through space in a kaleidoscope.”

Presented by the Smith Office for the Arts, in partnership with the Department of English Language and Literature and the Science Center.
