Chair on Heritage Futures

Message in a bottle to the future?

Postat den 9th October, 2020, 19:55 av Cornelius Holtorf

Johan Joelsson and Jonatan Jacobsson published a beautiful book of illustrated essays entitled “Message in a bottle to the future: how we preserve our traces for 100,000 years“.

Surprisingly many of the texts and images engage with cultural and natural heritage that is directly relevant to heritage futures. There are essays about the Memory of Mankind, the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, the use of DNA Storage to preserve digital data, the remains of the city of Pripyat near Chernobyl, the destroyed Kiruna Town Hall which recently had to give way to the city’s mining operations,  and – not the least – the question of long-term memory of repositories of nuclear waste (which includes interviews with Anders and Cornelius).
