According to Professor Soheila Esfahani "in this project, students are creating text based installations around Renison College based on text from literature, advertisement, popular culture, etc. The text can be in any language or pseudo text. Many of the works conceptually respond to where they are located within the college."

Many works of conceptual art manifest as Installation art, which is an artistic genre that challenges the boundaries of traditional art.
