Lara Zettl – Future Fossils

Diploma project by Lara Zettl

Future Fossils recounts the discovery of the first human-made fossil and illustrates the pathway to its origin in five chapters. Between a scientific report and a travel journal, this project shows human beings’ effect on planet Earth by contextualising their social, geopolitical, and economic dimensions. Abandoned shores, shifting oceans and overloaded landfills reflect the environmentally damaging colonial legacy of a specific material, i.e., plastic. This project tells the global stories of these fossilised artefacts, which bear witness to human beings’ excessive material culture and to the rivalry between the living and built realms.
