Vessels of the Late Petroleum Age

Philadelphia photographer Rick Wright inhabits the persona of a c. 4300 CE archaeologist: a scientist stumbling onto a cache of preserved vessels crafted out of an unknown synthetic material. This Dada series of catalogued “artifacts” explores how a future society might interpret contemporary plastic containers. The project is driven by Wright’s creative lens work; the objects taking on new form, expression, and meaning. There are 27 digital photographs (18 on display at Camerawork Gallery) in the collection—printed with tri-tone pigment ink on Hahnemühle Bamboo paper at 12” x 18”.
