Jet lag

Every prehistoric item in this installation went through a 'jet-lagging' process: After making a cast of the item, it was grinded down to dust.

The resulting dust matter was put back together in the cast, thus the item recovering its initial form.

 

 

These items used to follow a timeline in natural-historical terms. They will follow a timeline after my intervention. In between both timelines, jet-lag.
