Susan Kooi en Torfi Fannar Gunnarsson: Lucy 2012

Over de expositie

In November 1974, a group of geologists, anthropologists, archaeologists and paleontoligists, looked for fossils in the Hedar Formation in Ethiopia. One morning they discovered some bones which came from one individual early hominid. In the camp the Beatles song ‘lucy in the sky with diamonds’ was being played loudly and repeatedly on a tape recorder. The fossil which was until then named AL 288-1, a female australopithecus afarensis that lived 3.2 million years ago, was therefore nicknamed Lucy.
