Immortal Plastics (IP) Assessment Services is a performative, methodological procedure which determines the depth of participants’ relations with hydrocarbons and positions participating individuals on a timeline of plastic’s ancient past and indefinite future.

In Collaboration with Marina Zurkow, for New Museum's 2012 Ideas City festival.

The weights of people’s belongings are tallied, and gathered into an itemized receipt.
Participants are documented with before and after photos and are left with their itemized receipt. They have the option to purchase a souvenir / memento mori—a keepsake jar of regrind that represents the amount of each plastic they had on their person, labeled with their total weight of personal plastic. The assessment process requires approximately 15 minutes.
