Julie Mecoli's series of black sculptures are structured as buildings and cityscapes that will lose their form in the end. The sculptures are made of bitumen, a petroleum derivative and fluid material that moves over time.
The sculptures refer to human impact on the natural world. As natural resources run out societies as we know them will collapse. The sculptures, like nature, go through an irreversible transition from form to formlessness reminding us of the impermanence of human endeavors.Three sculptures from the series will be on display: Dark Matter: Small House, Dark Matter: Cities - London, Dark Matter: Cities - Detroit.
