The TH&B collective created a sculpture of a modern Core Sample using man-made materials and cultural symbols such as, white styrofoam, fiberglass pink insulation, foam packing peanuts, clock radios, bubble wrap, album covers, and Christmas lights. These materials were layered horizontally alluding to sedimentary rock striations that have been compressed and hardened overtime. Each layer of sedimentary rock acts as a snapshot of the earth at that specific time in geologic history. For example, a layer that contains limestone, sand, and aquatic fossils would denote a past waterbody in the location. Similarly, in the TH&B sculpture, each layer of this constructed core sample tells the story of the relationship between humans and synthetic materials such as, plastic. This futuristic core sample is meant to act as a critique on the modern consumerist, throwaway culture that plastics are born of. This piece forces the viewer to imagine a future post-human excavating a core sample and finding these materials layered on top of one another and constructing a narrative of the present-day humans’ life and value system.
