Archival Burial


Fossils are like books written by the hand of our planet millions of years in the past. They allow a glimpse into long-lost worlds offering insights and charging the imagination with images of what once roamed our planet. Unfortunately human control over the natural environment has, in most places, taken away the natural potential for the creation of a fossil; burials create the perfect environment for decay and its unlikely that human remains will last.

I have designed a Petrifaction device, which turns a freak natural occurrence into a guaranteed outcome. Allowing remains to last for hundreds of millions of years.
