Rosenmunthe has in his series of new wall-hung works combined photography with various kinds of unconventional materials: Honeycomb aluminum, resin, coal, and carbon fiber. The resin-covered photographs present found footage of archeological procedures and finds. With these works, Rosenmunthe maps the subterranean structures of fictitious construction sites, where things such as fiber optics, water pumps, various kinds of records, and natural minerals sources co-exist with the remains of our ancestors. As we build our high-tech infrastructures, we often encounter archaeological finds in the ground beneath. Sometimes the earth suddenly gives way and an old tunnel is found, other times the materials of the future just exist side by side with bones from the Stone Age without us knowing it. If discovered, the archeological finds are also brought into the high-tech world of C14 dating, grid marks, reacting liquids, UV light, resin microscopy, and climate-adjusting display systems.
