A sarcophagus not to be opened for 10,000 years

The packet of spicy crisps was placed in a sarcophagus weighing 1,360 kg. It is held in a suspended resin slab, in order to preserve it in the event of a natural disaster such as an earthquake. On the sarcophagus, the artist affixed a plaque of gold leaf on which he engraved: “A historical artifact is buried below. Do not open for 10,000 years. Year of burial: 2022.'

On the sheet, the man also noted the list of ingredients contained in the tomb.

The sarcophagus was buried in Seattle. To find the perfect place to keep it, Sunday Nobody launched an appeal on his Instagram account to find someone who would agree to bury the sarcophagus on his property. People who had already heard of the artist's projects accepted.

The burial of the packet of chips was immortalized in a TikTok video that garnered 10 million views in the space of 48 hours. In front of this video, Internet users have put forward many theories. What will happen to the bag of crisps in 10,000 years?

If some think he could start a war when the sarcophagus is open , others imagine it could be displayed in a museum on Saturn as a collector's item. For the artist, the purpose of his experience is above all to show that 'art is a joke » , in his words.
