Vessels of the late Petroleum Age: Evidence of Ancient Earth

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 Rick’s creative lenswork; the objects taking on new form, expression, and meaning.
