Harvard Time Capsule

The Time Capsule series is an exploration in connecting people with those who have come before them, By capturing and replaying one’s experience of seeing their own silhouette come to life, they leave their mark upon the piece forever.

Harvard Time Capsule is made of Flip-Discs — a medium developed by BREAKFAST which uses electromagnets to rotate the physical pixels from one side to another.

When one walks up to the piece, they will see their image reflected back at them. When they step away, a portion of their interaction will replay, then be added to the Time Capsule. Over time, the piece will gather and replay thousands of interactions captured from today to back when the piece was first powered on.
