Modern Fossils of the City

This project began with me wandering the city, closely examining the familiar drains, fasteners, coverings, connectors, and paving stones that I usually ignore. I then kneeled down and pressed a ball of clay against these to make a mold. After a day of drying, I was left with piles of fossils — a catalogue that you can touch, inspect. Reimagine. These familiar parts of the of the city infrastructure now occupy new, unfamiliar forms, which become all the more curious to me when blown up into giant posters.
