Fossils

When I started sewing my irregular plastic scales into circles, the shapes they formed made me think of the curious stone pieces I sometimes found in the sea stacks when I visited my grand father in Öland. Fossils are a kind of petrified memories of past worlds. What in our time will be saved and in what form will it be passed on to the future? For example, what will happen to all the plastic rubbish? In 10 000 years - will some of it live on as stone images in a marble floor?
