Encompassing adaptable sculpture, video and objects from the collection of The Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences (MAAS), Soft Topologies is an exhibition that considers the points of convergence between the body and the practice of charting atmospheric space.
As the 2017 MAAS Research Fellow, Scardifield undertook investigations into 19th century astronomical artefacts from the collection. Objects uncovered during her research are reimagined as tools of anatomical enquiry in the context of the exhibition, which seeks to calibrate physical and celestial bodies.
