In the fall of 2017, Open AiR (Artist-in-Residence) Jodi Darby collaborated with Open School North students on a video time capsule inspired by NASA's Voyager Golden Record and the 1876 Century Safe. Students considered the interplay between the past, present and future, the social and spiritual function of the self-archive and the use of hope in forming ideas about the future.
The video time capsules were shared at a public screening on January 25, 2018 after which students were given a copy of their piece on a flash drive to be buried, preserved, socked away and re-opened in the timeframe of their choosing.
This video was produced during an Open Signal partnership with Open School North. Made possible with generous support from the Oregon Community Foundation, Mount Hood Cable Regulatory Commission and the Oregon Arts Commission.
