MIT may be a rigorous research facility and one of the best universities in the world, but there's more to the institute than numbers.

Hi! My name is Mark, and I'm currently a freshman studying Computer Science and Philosophy. When I'm not doing homework, I'm writing programs and taking pictures of objects and places around me. This time, I need your help. I'm striving to create a photobook that encompasses environment and culture while focusing on architecture, people, and events representative of life at MIT.

The Institvte is a story about a school, its architecture and environment. Most of all, it's a story about culture, mindset, and people. MIT is known as a rigorous research facility and one of the best universities in the world, but there's more to the institute than numbers. 

The goal of this project is to present MIT to the world under new light, exposing its multidimensional nature while telling a story from a fresh perspective. By helping Kickstart this project, you're not just getting a photobook, you're getting an experience. 

Thank you for sharing this story with the world.

Extra Notes

  • The video above shows several photos I took around campus last semester. They are meant to serve more as an idea rather than a preview. The actual photobook will cover a wider range of subjects and compositions while still maintaining the focus on MIT.
  • The song in the video is Pray for Rain by Massive Attack. 
  • Feel free to contact me with questions and concerns you may have. If you would like to chat, my Google Talk is phunny.phacts@gmail.com
