MONOLITH

When thinking about artifacts and great relics what come to my head first is the Monolith from Arthur C Clarks  2001 A Space Odyssey. The mysterious obsidian black rectangle is a fictional artifact from an advanced alien race that store there knowledge of technology into the Monolith this artifact in the film meets man at a pivotal moment in our evolution and its the the Monolith that teaches us to use tools. My Idea for designed artifacts s similar in as much as maybe in two thousand or so years maybe my objects might help to re-educate mankind in some dystopian Mad Max like world.
