Since way before modern man has walked the earth we and our ancestors have been creating waste. Whether it be food waste or stone tools or computer monitors, we humans have always been throwing stuff away. Well what about if some of the techno-trash we get rid of was to be quickly fossilized?
Well what we are left with are examples of floppy disks, ps2 controllers, cell phones (that look like one I once had), and other such devices. Christopher makes each one by hand with a mix of cement and other "secret ingredients" to make them really look and feel like fossils.
Being an anthropology major myself I find these to be pretty fascinating. It's almost like a glimpse into the future as to what our great great great great great ancestors may find. I like the hard drive one especially. Knowing that peoples' lives are stored on those things, it's cool to see it as a fossil with no way of extracting that info. Will future human societies know what the hard drive was? It's very possible since our history is so well recorded today. From what someone is eating for lunch to our most recent space flights.
These are apparently for sale. He gives a way to contact him on his website through email to purchase one. I think it would be cool to have a future fossil hanging on the wall. What would you want fossilized?
