Street: You say most of your work is “place_oriented.” What does that mean to you, and what are some examples of projects?
Kelsey Halliday Johnson: Each body of work I make situates itself within a given site (historical or literal) and becomes a kind of investigation of the cultural or social histories that lie within the landscape or particular place.
I entered my undergraduate degree planning to major in geosciences, so the physical environment has always been a sincere interest of mine.
