Contamination /kənˌtæm.ɪˈneɪ.ʃən/

noun

Is the presence of a constituent, impurity, or some other undesirable element that spoils, corrupts, infects, makes unfit or inferior certain material, physical body, natural environment, or space.

The conflicting relationship between human society and the environment increasingly affects biomes, the geophysics of the planet, and the very human perception of itself and of reality. At the same time, it leaves behind altered traces of a misguided attempt to domesticate 'nature' translated through the paradoxical primary need to survive to the point of self-destruction.

Future archaeology will come across varied kinds of objects and remains, damned and contaminated with the memory of the times when the present was turning into a predictable dystopian stratum of the future.
