Mike Mishin | Asphalt Archeology

On the planet where we are securely magnetized to its surface, it is clear: everything that falls is doomed to land on the “ground”. Rarely and randomly some things end up rolled into the mixture of bituminous pitch with gravel, aka “asphalt”.

In this unique and timeless natural creation, urban traffic is a major force that flattens and pushes fallen objects into the road surface. These man-made and destroyed objects, forever lost and accidentally found, often distorted beyond recognition, remain “fossilized” as silent reminders that perhaps we look far ahead too much and don’t consider what is right in front.
