Fossilized Pepsi cans sit in vertical troughs, buried standing up. Upson makes them using an experimental casting process: a Pepsi can is filled with liquid aluminum that melts into the can’s form, merging the stream of metal and the can into one solid object. The colors of the can burn off, but there is a shadow of the label left. They proliferate through the gallery, swarming. They look like the litter that’s left after the world burns down, remnants of a prehistoric future, the debris of a post- capitalist world.
