if I would find a fossil just like that...I would do all kinds of things with it and mix research and experiments with fantasy. I would change its context and frame over and over again, re-arrange, look for something 'readable', etc. And then I'd feel like I am able to see the original environment of the fossil, that I understand it. But it's just my attempts to understand that world that I'm not familiar with. Me re-arranging into a version of my own.
I started the project 'Future Fossils' by making clay imprints of random daily things in my outside environment. I investigate, interpret and spread them like fossils.
