Artificial Archeology
Menu
Comment & Collect
Stone tools are the first historically recorded tools of humans, reaching back 2.6 million years ago. The stone tools in "Artificial Archeology" are generated by an algorithm which applies deformations in the style of chipped stone to virtual 3D objects. These objects are rendered with a filter to mimic the style of 19th century scientific illustrations.

The intent of this design experiment is to demonstrate that the past is subject to rewriting, reinterpretation, and recreation in subsequent time periods. We cannot accurately know how the past was, but we know how it is interpreted in the time we live in. With the help of sufficiently sophisticated technology, the past can also be entirely invented. The synthetic artificiality of the stone tools becomes more evident when rendered as gemstones.
