'Topos' depicts a geometer's office in the months before his retirement. The contours of a working life are distilled into details as much remembered as seen. Harvey is interested in the fault lines of memory, how image and recollection both fix and obscure experience. Our surroundings make their mark on us while we are lost in thought. A room can be a portrait of a personís mind, a map of their physical orbit.
