Sculptures – Drift Bottle

This story began when there still were humans living on earth. 3000 years ago, around the year 2019, scientists threw a PET bottle into the sea in order to do research on currents of plastic garbage.
The bottle was equipped with various sensors, a GPS-linked beacon and a state-of-the-art microcomputer and it was worth a fortune. Yet, it got immediately swallowed by a giant squid. Feeling bored inside the squid’s stomach, it started copying the DNA of
the squid’s seafood prey and morphed
bionically over the passing of centuries. When the squid died, it resurfaced but no one was left to look out for the Drift Bottle. So, now it keeps sending out signals which, unheard by anyone, fizzle out in the depths of the universe.
