In Search of Future Fossils

Professor David Farrier and Andy Merritt (Something & Son)
Reading, In conversation and Q&A with Fiona Boundy
Tuesday 22nd September, 7.30pm
Zoom Webinar

‘What will the world look like ten thousand or ten million years from now?’

In Footprints, David Farrier explores the traces we will leave for the very deep future. From long-lived materials like plastic and nuclear waste, to the 50 million kilometres of roads spanning the planet, in modern times we have created numerous objects and landscapes with the potential to endure through deep time.Through literature, art, and science, Footprints invites us to think about how we will be remembered in the myths, stories, and languages of our distant descendants.

Fiona Boundy, public art specialist, talks to Andy and David exploring the connections between the book Footprints and the ideas behind the forthcoming public artwork Future Fossil.
