Contours of an Invisible City envisions Rome as a multiverse of sorts – an ancient metropolis teeming with phantasms and histories. Pairing guidebooks from the 16th-20th centuries with a new series of photographs by non-fiction photographer Kieran Dodds, the exhibition invites reflection on the palimpsest of invisible cities that are Rome.

Escape the Library

September 21, 2022

This week, we opened "Escape the Library" at the Terman Engineering Library. We had such a fun time creating this escape room, and it has been even more fun watching students enjoy the game during orientation week.

It's been three days now, and we have had several escapees - including my husband (pictured below) who finally got to play after hearing me talk about the game ALL summer. Bookings are open until November 18th to anyone with an active Stanford ID. Will you escape?
