Where Platform’s previous shows Snarled Megalopolis and Suburbia explored geographies of large cities and suburbs, Micro-Topologies investigates the complexities of human-land relationships and natural-human phenomena envisioned in “local” contexts. The exhibit features artworks that reveal, examine and (re)interpret activities, environments, movements and communities on a small scale. It focuses on specific sites, interpreting “micro” as literally microscopic or hyper-local.
Micro-topologies will be the final in a series of three shows that explored artistic interpretations of the IHC’s Geographies of Place theme. For more information about the IHC’s Platform gallery, please visit: www.ihc.ucsb.edu/platform
