When I first visited the Merri Creek near my home, I was surprised to notice the amount of rubbish lying around in the water, bushes and vegetation. It was more rubbish than I expected and stood out as it was contrasted against the natural environment and surroundings. Whether I liked it or not, these disruptive human-made objects had become part of the landscape. 

As the objects will take hundreds and thousands of years to decompose in this environment, I was thinking about how these objects could be perceived in 500 years time by future generations. I decided to observe these objects from an archeological perspective and represent them as historical artefacts that humans have left behind while walking through the site. I created a webpage that shows all the objects I found during a specific time period and area, and added descriptions which mimic the writing structure of other archeological websites. The drawing background behind the objects represents how we leave a human footprint behind to the places we go and the "messiness" it creates. Although this could be perceived as a quirky representation of waste, I am hoping this project will give the viewer an insight into the consequences of human existence and how we as a species affect our environment and ecosystem.
