The Internet Fossil Curios
* 04

‘‘The Internet Fossil Curios” is a speculative future research project utilising a temporary exhibit and archival book to document anthropogenic Internet fossils. The contextual future is set one thousand years from now in a world depleted of all natural resources and scarred from material extraction.

Research is conducted through the perspective of ‘The Society of Fossil Archival & Material Renewal’, a fictional society that aims to highlight the material value of these fossils. They contain hybrid materials resembling Plastiglomerate - a fusion of plastic and rock, which has deeply informed the project’s methodology. Acting as anthropogenic markers, they remind us of the permanent trace that our improper treatment and recycling of digital objects leaves behind.
