watercolor on paper
These drawings of early human tools open the debate on the Anthropocene era: some researchers state that it started with the creation of the first stone tools, that is to say more than 3 million years ago. The scientific accuracy and realistic style of the watercolor flints contrast with the idea of wreckage which they convey. Maksym Khodak here casts the light on those forgotten artifacts, questioning how History moves on through the constant creation of ruins.
