Keep taking the tablets.

125.00

Ever wondered why the ancients created hieroglyphics? It was to record the inventory that enabled state formation. This piece is a nice one to have for thinking about possible futures.

At the very beginning of recorded human history across the world, clay tablets were used to write narratives about materials, resources and how things were done.

Today, again, the tablet dominates our human culture, and as new coded behaviours are established through digital hieroglyphics, we may be creating a new chapter in human evolution.

What new kind of state formation will it create?.

As that digital civilisation emerges, we reconnect with the old, with our origins. The buttons, links and commands we take for granted as part of digital life are becoming embedded and are on display here, a reminder of that true connection with our ancient selves.

This artwork is one of a limited edition, made by hand. A ceramic framed on wood to hang on your wall.
