For the Future to Find: The 2012 Time Capsule

With the recent publicity surrounding the end of the Mayan calendar and the Doomsday predictions, For the Future to Find opens their project with the launch of a new website asking for people worldwide to join this historic, photographic record of the people of 2012.

Glasgow, UK, 08/05/12

With many predictions and theories describing the ‘end of the world’ on 21/12/12, the For the Future to Find project is giving people the chance to send a message to the future by asking them to upload a picture of what matters most to them and to add a few words. These words and pictures will all be transferred to microfilm, and then buried in a custom made time capsule to be opened 250 years from now.

The project asks people to choose a picture of something that matters to them such as family, loved ones, favourite musician; a piece of art or music, their first car, first home, the list is endless. Then they can write a few words explaining why it’s important to them.

Their images and descriptions are then used to create PDFs which will be imported into a microfilm processing machine. Each 16mm microfilm slide will contain 4 scanned PDFs and each microfilm reel will contain 500 slides. The microfilm reels will then be sealed in a custom made time capsule along with a simple glass viewer for the future to find in 250 years. The project will be using social media such as Facebook and Twitter to interact with the people who join the project and will be asking for their input and suggestions on many decisions such as burial site, which charities to support and what will be written on the plaque for the time capsule.

The time capsule will be registered with the International Time Capsule Society in Atlanta to ensure the time capsule is not forgotten about or lost. (Link)

The possibility of the world ending is a real concern to many people worldwide. A recent survey showed that one in ten people worldwide believe the Mayan calendar ending marks the end of the world (Ipsos on behalf of Reuters news (Link)

For the Future to Find projects has a Martin Luther King quote on their website which they feel sums up their attitude to the Doomsday predictions: “Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree”. Founder of the project, Mary Gater commented “We don’t know if the world is going to end or not, but we’ve got faith that we’ll still be here next year. The project is all about having hope in the future, that’s why we’re leaving something for them to find.”

www.forthefuturetofind.com was founded in May this year to allow people from all over the world to join the project. The website allows users to easily upload their images and to stay connected to the project using social media.
