I love this video piece by LEELA SCHAUBLE envisioning the possibility of future synthetic species.

Leela states: ‘Synthetic Species’ is a series made during my 2012 Beijing Residency at Shen Shaomin Studios. The objects Synthetic Species have an apocalyptic tenor. The primary material is plastic, shown here in photographs of new forms of life, floating in a primordial evolutionary soup. Because of its inorganic indestructability, I imagine these materials as an unnatural successor to humankind once it has become extinct.

PLASTIGLOMERATE

A new rock dubbed PLASTIGLOMERATE is formed by molten plastic debris morphing with basalt lava.  Find research from The Geological Society of America by oceanographer Charles Moore, geologist Patricia Corcoran here.  Below, are examples of Kelly Jazvac's work. She displays these "readymade" objects. See additional beautiful work by artist Kelly Jazvac here
