What lies beneath us, concrete above and below. What new cycle of sedimentation and erosion will be formed by landfill, toxic chemicals that we put into the ground? Layers of non-human history are disappearing as we eat away at them. As deep time materials are depleted and displaced – stone, marble clay, what will the synthetic aggregates create, a pliable plastic future monument of precarity?
