A mechanical grave mound. A tumulus of precious industry. A barren barrow of capitalist expansion and burring of a once-thriving shoreline. #archaeology #mound #contemporaryarchaeology #heritage #vestige

A vestigial coppiced goat willow. A botanical fragment of a long-gone Tromsø residential back yard. The house has been replaced a what probably is some kind of water treatment "cubical" building. #Tromsø #heritage #contemporaryarchaeology

Life in the interstice, or, SLOAP (spaces left over after planning) botany. Rhubarb plants, probably from illegally dumped garden refuse, growing amongst ruble in a narrow section of undeveloped shoreline along the mostly reclaimed eastern shore of the Tromsø island. #tromsø #sloap #vestige #contemporaryarchaeology #heritage

. #یکعکس مردها فضا را پر کرده‌اند. مثل آکسسوار. مثل شمع‌هایی که قطرات پارافینشان روی گل‌های بی‌محافظ می‌چکد و می‌سوزاند. مردهای کت‌پوش، مردهای سیاه پوش، آوای قدرت خویش را زمزمه می‌کنند. مناسک شروع می‌شود. مردان سلطه‌ی خود را بازتولید می‌کنند. دنیای مردانه در حال لنگ زدن است. مرهمی زنانه باید، تا جهان از این تباهی عبور کند. زمان: چهارشنبه ۱۶ بهمن ۱۳۹۸ مکان: خیابان #لافایت #پاریس #کوتابلند #مردبودگی #زنبودگی #مرد #زن #کارتپستال #یافتهخیابانی #باستانشناسیمعاصر #streetfindings #contemporaryarchaeology #cratepostale #postalcard #menitude #feminitude #Lafayette #paris #prepandemic

#تصدقنامه پارت آخر: سی‌ام تصدقت شوم، ستاره‌ی سرخ نماد کمونیسم بود. اما بیا تا برایت از 《ترس سرخ》 بگویم. زمانی که کمونیسم داشت جهان را در می‌نوردید، رهبران جهان مدرن را نگرانی فرا گرفت. کارگران جهان نباید قیام می‌کردند. نظام سرمایه‌داری باید متوسل به راهی می‌شد تا جلوی بلشویک‌ها و نفوذ تفکراتشان را بگیرد. بنابراین به ایجاد ترس متوسل شد. مردم باید از هرآنچه بوی کمونیسم می‌داد می‌ترسیدند. رهبران ایالات متحده، با توسل به آمیخته‌ای از حقیقت و  دروغ، ترسی در دل مردم ایجاد کردند که ترس سرخ نام گرفت و اینگونه بود که جلوی نفوذ کمونیسم را گرفتند. و حالا نگاه کن، دور و برمان را هر روز ترسی جدید فراگرفته، با رنگی جدید و بهانه‌ای جدیدتر... اما قربانت بشوم، من از هیچ رنگی ترسی ندارم، ما دست در دست هم از سیاهی‌ عبور کردیم. بالاتر از سیاهی که رنگی نیست؟ .  زمان: پنجشنبه ۳۱ مرداد ۱۳۹۸ مکان: #pokrovkastreet #مسکو . #کوتابلند #تصدقتبشوم #تشتک #سفرنامه #ترسسرخ #جعلواقعیت #کمونیسم #بلشویک #ستارهسرخ #یافتهخیابانی #باستانشناسیمعاصر #streetfindings #travelogue #moscow #russia #redscare #communism #heinken #bottlecaps #contemporaryarchaeology

#تصدقنامه پارت بیست و نهم تصدقت شوم، تشتک‌ها بهانه‌اند. می‌آیند و می‌روند. مثل روزها. مثل آدم‌ها. می‌خواستم به بهانه‌ی این تشتک و خراش‌های رویش از احوالات دلم برایت بگویم. جایی از آن نمانده که چنگی بدان نخورده باشد. اینجا هوا سرد است. لبخند با لبان مردم میانه‌ای ندارد. راستی می‌دانستی که در مکتبخانه‌های روس، طریقت لبخند نزدن را به شاگردان می‌آموزند؟ قربانت بشوم، ما که می‌گذریم و می‌رویم. اما آیندگانی خواهند آمد و خواهند گفت که روزگاری بر روی زمین، انسان‌هایی بودند که لبخند را از یکدیگر دریغ می‌کردند. تصدقت بشوم، نکند روزی برسد که ما نیز لبخندمان را از یکدیگر دریغ کنیم... . زمان: دوشنبه ۴ شهریور ۱۳۹۸ مکان: #میدانسرخ #مسکو . #کوتابلند #لبخندنزدن #تشتک #بهانه #لبخند #مکتبخانه #روسیه #سفرنامه #یافتهخیابانی #باستانشناسیمعاصر #streetfindings #prepandemic #bottlecaps #moscow #russia #contemporaryarchaeology

Plastic wise man and a fish, found on Cornish beaches. Both are ‘fèves’ - originally fava beans - which in France are hidden inside ‘Gallette des Rois’ cakes to celebrate the Epiphany. In England, our own Twelfth Night Cake (and Lord of Misrule or ‘King of the Bean’) became the silver sixpence in the Christmas pudding. The third photograph shows the fish fève with other plastic fish found on beaches, including fishing lures and soy sauce containers from takeaway sushi. With thanks to @not_in_new_york for recognising the wise man in the first place. . No. 4 at the #TravellingMuseumofFinds. More via the link in the bio and then Blog from the menu. .

On new shores. Moved to a new apartment in Tromsø; a new shoreline to reconnoitre. This secluded shore had an impressive amount of derelict boathouses. Ramshackle buildings are nowadays a rare sight in affluent Norwegian cities that are heavily policed for certain aesthetics. #contemporaryarchaeology #tromsø #mudlark #heritage #unrulyheritage #boathouse

“The current geological era has been largely shaped by Man. And I am using the word consciously: it has been the Man of humanism — white, Western, male — that has created the ecological conditions of our troubled age. It is not spiders or protozoa that are responsible for climate change. It is not Fulbe women or Aché hunter-gatherers either. The concept of Anthropocene conflates Man and human. It makes all humanity guilty of something for which many are not — if anything, they are victims.” Alfredo González-Ruibal: An Archaeology of the Contemporary Era. Routledge, 2019, p. 14.

Welcome to the #TravellingMuseumofFinds No. 1 Combs, bone and plastic (17th-21st century). . Combs have been a favourite shore find of mine for years. I like that they’re ordinary, personal objects, as well as one of our oldest tools. The earliest known comb was carved from bone around 8000 years ago, and the design has changed little since the Bronze Age.... .

Peanut butter sandwich worthy survey on the spit today. I didn't quite re-enact this passage from Rings of Saturn: ".. I see the hare leaping out of its hiding-place, with it's ears laid back and a curiously human expression on its face that was rigid with terror and strangely divided; and in its eyes, turning to look back as it fled and almost popping out of its head with fright, I see myself, become one with it. Not till half-an-hour later, when I reached the broad dyke that separates the grass expanse from the pebble bank that slopes to the shoreline, did the blood cease its clamour in my veins". 🥜 🥜 🥜 sensory #anthropocene #contemporaryarchaeology #archaeology #phdlife #academicinstagram #academicmama #urbanexploration #urbex #toronto #torontowild #tommythompsonpark

Water kelpies are made from plastic in the Anthropocene. This specimen, found on the shore in a fjord in northern-Norway, was made in 1972 in England. Plastic objects have a tendency to be buried and preserved in shore sediments for years before resurfacing. #contemporaryarchaeology #materialculture #heritage #marinedebris #marineplastic #Tromsø
