"What object would you like archeologists 1000 years from now to remember our present day culture by?”
Future Relics was Google Arts and Culture’s first Lab experiment in India, part of a landmark exhibition in Mumbai, India and the World: A History in Nine Stories at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya. Visitors were asked, “What object would you like archeologists 1000 years from now to remember our present day culture by?” Responses created an evolving data visualization and inspired a collection of 10 future relics, created using cutting edge 3D printing technology with Google ATAP and Emerging Objects, and glazed by acclaimed master craftsman B R Pandit. These relics are now on display within the museums collection - truly shared artifacts, created by thousands of diverse voices that contributed in Hindi, Marathi and English.
