2114: A Library Project

There is an interesting New York Times article about a time capsule for writers: http://nyti.ms/1qT9NVQ

The Scottish artist Katie Paterson has created a project called Future Library that will result in a “special anthology of books to be printed in one hundred years’ time. Between now and then, one writer every year will contribute a text, with the writings held in trust, unpublished until 2114.” 

The Deichmanske public library in Oslo will be the time capsule for the project and the first contributor will be Margaret Atwood. Not knowing what printing will be like in the future, the project coordinators even equipped the library with a printing press. 

Only time will tell what happens with this project but according to history “Embargoes, like scarcity can breed fascination."
