Surface Topologies

Surface Topologies is a multimedia installation that investigates the formal properties and material history of asphalt.

In consideration of its natural, liquidized form to its expansive rematerializations and industrial applications, Surface Topologies addresses the role of asphalt in promoting metaphoric tropes for growth, discovery, and futurity.

This project was supported through a Traveling Fellowship from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, which allowed for travel and reserach at the Pitch Lake in Trinidad and Tobago––the world’s largest naturally occurring deposit of liquid asphalt.
