Future Remnants

Xandra van der Eijk

Research into the influence of man on the evolution of new minerals and materials. The project shows the reaction of metals to ordinary household chemical agents.

With a disciplined testing methodology four metals were exposed to twelve agents by means of three techniques. Within a limited time period, reactions were observed, resulting in an extensive collection of hybrid materials. Future Remnants aims to demonstrate on a small scale what could happen, or is in fact already happening, on a large scale in the landscape.
