New York Times magazine organised a competition to design a time capsule to be opened 1000 years from now, to reveal what living in this day and age is all about.

Jurgen Bey took part for droog. He decided that we should transmit information to the future in an organic way. Like the manner we now get data from the past: by excavation and heritage.

This process will be continued by providing contemporary products with information on our culture. These products should survive in a natural process: circumstances decide which products will survive 1000 years. The entry did unfortunately not win.
