gameboy bricks

A million years from now that hand would probably look more evolved, but the idea is nice: What if we would mold objects of the now into stone or bricks to preserve them over time and have future archeologists wonder how the technology was used? "Brick Boys" last for eternity!

Gijs Gieskes (The Netherlands) created them in 2006; has put them in his back yard to let nature take over until the next stoneage. He is also spreading them over the world (for €20,- a piece) so the chance of survival will increase.

Nu use in turning plastic toys into stone to make them 'last longer' for eternity, since plastics will be here in a million years while in the meantime the stones will be gone long time....

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Siri Beerends: I really embrace the idea that viruses can teach us a lesson in modesty. It is necessary that our position as the dominant species on the planet is being challenged. I also agree that it is a mistake to think that we are becoming Gods. But unfortunately, this is actually what is happening now. Corona doesn’t teach us to be modest, it teaches us how we can -as quickly as possible- go back to business as usual: saving our capitalistic economy.
