This Is Now

Made for the Amber Archive Project, where art, science and this film (in flash drive form) will be encased in amber and buried to create a time capsule. (Honestly!) Inspired by Carl Sagan’s “Voyager Project” of the 70s, this video is a tongue-in-cheek, funny and thought-provoking look at communicating with the future and the impossibility of “Now”
