A very interesting project, and one that comes at an interesting time, as 2012 mania lurches into its final throes and, related or not, the deepening
spectre of doom continues to grip pessimistic hearts.
Should we all vanish from this planet, The Last Pictures
project will provide a
haunting final testament in near-space, circtling our planet with images designed to last for five billion years. Will alien eyes ever see them?
The photos range from 17,000-year-old cave paintings to predator drone photos and financial charts. It would be interesting to know what ATS members
would choose if they had to select 100 photos to summarize the world as our species sees it. Beyond this, its a haunting project and an attempt to
preserve for billions of years our moment in time and space.
