‘Every act of perception, is to some degree an act of creation, and every act of memory is to some degree an act of imagination.’
Oliver Sacks, ‘Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain’
In 1999 The New York Times invited twenty-one designers and architects to make a proposal for a time capsule that would be opened in the year 3000. The jury selected Santiago Calatrava’s design for fabrication, and it is now mounted on a pedestal on the grounds of the American Museum of Natural History in New York. We were not interested in making a monumental object reliant on an institution to survive to the next millennium.
Instead we asked: How might one increase the odds of something small lasting a thousand years when institutions come and go?
