Vestiges of the Future
This work in marble from Phillipsburg, Quebec, is an artifact from a distant future.
The inscription of the texts will be done in a future where our present reality has become history.
It doesn’t exist yet!
The plates will become an infrastructure of a building which will in turn be subject to the vississitudes of time which will damage it and break it into pieces.These text fragments describe a civilization that is educated and full of itself.
Anthropologists from this distant future will inject a few shards of these plates into present time, so that we can discern something about what we will become.
Now it’s up to us.
