Future Relics was a satirical installation presented as an on-site showcase of the celestial navigation systems used by Mesoamericans, c. 9,000 BCE. The project was a social experiment testing how design influences our perception of the world around us. My goal was to create an experience that would lead an audience into giving power and meaning to an inanimate and seemingly worthless rock. I created a fictional artifact, called Stella Luna, fictionally used by paleolithic communities as a tool for celestial navigation. The exhibition was held for two weeks at CSULA's CoMa Gallery in December of 2016.
The concept is demonstrative of societies abilitty to manipulate cultural narative.
