Archeological Survey: Inner West Sector 

Project space project #18

Open 11am - 5pm Sat 27-Sun 28 July

A survey of a headland on the Australian continent's central East Coast has revealed a sector designated, ‘Inner West Sydney’. Remnants of concrete pathways and structures buried by sediments, evidence of high levels of social activity in a densely populated settlement, categorise the site as ‘worthy of study’. The excavation reveals artifacts comprised of randomly dispersed, thin sheets of printed wood pulp. Analysis of this synchronic detritus discloses mundane communal, economic, intra and inter-personal human activities underling a matrix of esoteric hierarchies.

Two diagnostic artifacts that contextualise this multiplicity are culturally encoded garments - a ‘hoody’ and ‘bridal gown’. They define the persistence of and conversely, erosion of, historic, binary-gendered epistemologies. In summary, archeologists have isolated the provenance of an undisturbed, early twenty-first century stratigraphy that details a typology of indoctrination alongside resistence to conformity, typical of this critical tipping point in the Anthropocene Era.
