Associate Professor Robert Silance's research interests include product and furniture design, examples of which have been exhibited and published in national and international venues, including ID Magazine, the ICFF furniture fair in New York City, and International Lighting Design edited by Lorenzo Porcelli. Currently professor Silance is developing a studio furniture system for the new addition to the School of Architecture. The transformation of the rural southern landscape is another field of inquiry that Professor Silance is pursuing and documenting through an ongoing photographic project entitled "Dirt For Sale: Constructing the Landscape of the New American South". Portions of this work have been exhibited at the University of Richmond Museums in Richmond, Virginia; St. John's University in Jamaica, New York; The New Jersey Center for Visual Art in Summit, New Jersey and the University of Texas at Tyler, Texas.
