Trained as an architect at Harvard University, Doyle is known for projects focusing on the objects of ordinary life and his ability to transform perceptions of them. His April 2000 project, “Leap,” included film of 400 New York residents jumping as high as they could. Doyle interviewed each participant about their desires and aspirations and included the information in materials distributed with the installation.

The “Search Engine” project continues throughout March as Doyle and the students collect video and photographs of the library. Watch it evolve weekdays from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays and 1-4 p.m. Sundays through April 4 in Trahern Gallery.
