Future Relics is a collaborative project together with artist Ben Yau. During our wanderings in the Wadden Sea islands we encountered many locals who shared their stories about marine pollution, the changes in sea-life and fishing in the area. We decided to experience the effects of the climate crisis on the island ourselves by embracing an old tradition: beachcombing.

By using walking on the beach, microcosmic looking, smelling, and collecting as our main research methods, we came to realize that in a closer look on this sand laid our fossilized future. Embedded within the present moment were relics of the past that act as forecasts of the future.

Future Relics goes beyond what is visible operating into the potential realm of future ecologies.
