The Rosetta Stone is currently exhibited as fragment in the British Museum.

 

The Rosetta Stone is revised as a fragmented codex across cultures and modes of communication, opening up space for speculation...

If we would decide to add a chapter for future generations to come, what signs would we let it carry?

 

At some point, during an excavation in bloomsbury, the addition to the Rosetta Stone will be found as a relict of a future past...

Mysterious signs emerge, as archeologists redeem the artifact from the dry London clay - might these belong to the enigmatic image based language developed in the proto-digital age?

We propose to conserve a fairly new, deeply pictographic but mostly digital way of communication by producing a physical update to the record that petrified the history of the written word like no other: the Rosetta Stone
