This exhibition focuses on the on-going research by design project developed for New York City within the scope of my PhD. It aims to reveal meaningful encounters with Manhattan’s geologic, a notion that no longer simply refers to geology but also emanates its own cultural and aesthetic meaning; it allows us to think experimentally about space, time and change.
This body of work is divided in three parts: the first is an exercise of revealing Manhattan’s geologic delineations and of speculating on issues of representation when the island is positioned in a much wider space-time depth. The second aims to rethink architectural and engineering inventions in the city as devices for working with geological faults. And the third proposes the notion of park as a politically charged landscape veil of mediation.
