In the first of four Prodigal Sons sessions, Sam Green, in his new “live documentary,” explores the time capsule as an expression of cultural imagination and self-portraiture, tracing the phenomenon from its roots in the ancient era to the present. From the famous capsule buried at the ‘39 World’s Fair, to the Voyager Spacecraft and its Golden Record launched into the cosmos in ‘77, to the Bay Area’s own Long Now Foundation (rep in the house!) and its 10,000 Year Clock, Green narrates while cueing a collage of photographs, moving images, and sounds. PLUS Monty Cantsin’s own spiel on ATA’s Art Strike time capsule, and Cathleen O’Connell’s Message in a Bottle, a 50-min. overview of the practice. ALSO scenes from World’s Fairs (including the ’15 SF Pan-Pacific Exposition) and visions of the future!
