Fossils of the Anthropocene

Anthropocene. The term used to define the current geological era, in which man has
managed – with territorial, structural and climatic changes – to impact geological processes.

When we speak of ‘fossils’, or even simply when we say the word ‘fossil’, in 87 percent of
cases, the brain processes an image that refers to a shape impressed in flint.
Usually a plant or an animal.

Deposits of sediment remain preserved for centuries in the layers of the earth’s crust.
Unbeknownst to them, one age succeeds another.

And today? Today there are other phenomena that mark time as we know it.

Although less natural, these phenomena are equally impactful.

Fashion is one of them. Fashion dictates time and defines eras.
It leaves an imprint, sometimes even becoming one with human anatomy.

If in 2409 a paleontologist went looking for fossils, what would he come across?

To provide a plausible answer one would have to crystallize the idea of the passage of time.
Showing us contemporary fossils that will no longer be contemporary – starting from a not too distant tomorrow.

Because the very idea of a ‘fossil’ is changeable in itself.

What has been, coincides with what will be.
