Creation Myth is a series by Anka Yanovna revealing the new mythology of a post-industrial society which has reconstructed their past through the remnants of their ancestor’s cast offs. What will survive climate change? What is left after a nuclear war? Which of our landfills will be excavated with the care given to ancient tombs? And how much might we, the survivors, shift the stories of our past by choice, to create a new mythology that grows and changes with the new world we have made for ourselves.
Like you, I don’t have the answers. We’re the archaeologists who’ve discovered these works, using our knowledge of the 21st century to piece together the fragments and divine their meaning.
