modern fossils

I was commissioned to create a group of 'modern fossils' by the Co-op organisation for a feature in their monthly magazine. The article concerned waste plastics that could not biodegrade and how in many years to come these discarded consumer items would be unearthed as modern fossils. I used pigmented and aggregated lime mortar to encase the items and after curing scraped away the 'stone' to give the impression of a fossil.
