Documentation of Artefact 01


A pseudometeorite discovered at the crumbling wall of the largest animal processing industrial complex in Germany. It was a part of the complex‘ visual and auditory isolation concept and is made of a material that is commonly used for sound insulation walls at highways. The fragment and its discovery become the center of a speculative fiction, woven intricately with themes of ethics, ecology, research, activism, and surveillance. The microsite presents a 3D scan of one of the discovered artefacts as well as a translated and shortened excerpt of the original German story. Microsite
