Artifacts (1994) is a tribal ambient album by the American artist Steve Roach. This album is a follow up to 1993’s Origins.

There is a poem by Roach's wife Linda Kohanov in the liner notes which is a sequel to her poem in Origins. Like Origins, many of the track titles were derived from this poem.
