In 1860, Alexander Parkes invented the first
manmade plastic called celluloid. I’m sure Parkes
never expected his invention to become one of
the worlds biggest polluters.
The effect of plastic within our geological era, the
anthropocene, is enormous. In 2006, a new type
of stone is found, a stone-plastic hybrid. This new
geological founding is called plastiglomerate and
seen as our future fossil.
This project is a speculation based upon this new
plastic-stone hybrid. Within this project I want to
show the effect of our plastic consumption on the
earth. By showing the existence of this unnatural
nature, I hope to open up a conversation about the
role of the human within our environment.
