Despite the study area, we can see a persistent appeal to objectivity meant to underline the materiality of the object that imitates an even more material source. This tablet is an example of art that dialectically seizes the myth with the purpose of its further processing rather than denouncement. Riddled with inscriptions, the plastic tablet ensures physical immortality of the Internet culture.
