This sounds like an opportunity to get students thinking of the
conscequences of our environmental actions and decisions. What will the
world of the future be like? What represents our culture and present time?
Natural Objects, with some pledge that they remain for the future?
Natural objects on the assumption that they will be rare in the future?
(In the book BLADE RUNNER is based on, wild animals have become so rare
they are exotic pets; a really wealthy individual aspires to owning a
squirrel). Refuse and rejects which as you point out are rapidly shaping
and putting boundaries on the future? last year for the winter solstice I
did a small performance piece about "Planting the seeds of your vision" and
handed out packets of seeds --seeds of change, seeds of empowerment, seeds
of giving and sharing, seeds of dispersal, seeds of joy and humor--with the
directions: "scatter widely or insert individually on likely ground". A
seed is, in its way, a time capsule in itself.

I hope you will share your results with us----
