Diagram: Monument Dissemination

Topaz, Utah is the ruin of a Japanese American Internment amp at the bottom of a barren, brine-soaked, prehistoric oceanbed. Abandoned since 1944, the sandy terrain is sculpted with cryptobiotic soil crusts, frost--fueled lichens and microbia that cling to the remnants of internment for shade and moisture. 

In-situ casting, material samples and photographic catalogs use the surface of the ground to recall a city imprisoned in a remote, alkaline, American desert.
