Ab Antiquo: Modern Fossils by Christopher Locke

Christopher Locke’s “Heartless Machine” modern fossils look like pieces excavated from an archaeological dig. Instead of dinosaur bones, they are fossils of gadgets made from archaic technology that was once cutting-edge.

From the humble cassette tape (Asportatio acroamatis) to the Playstation 2 controller (Ludustatarium temperosony), each “species” of modern fossil even has a Latin name.
