Creative time capsule with visions of the future
Artists and designers are being asked to submit their interpretations of future design for a time capsule which will be opened in a decade’s time.
In celebration of the new year paper producer Arjowiggins Creative Papers has launched The Blank Sheet Project Time Capsule, encouraging artists and designers to predict what design will look like in 2023.
“Like George Orwell’s [book] 1984 and the 1950s silver jump-suited 21st century, the time capsule will present an intriguing view of how we see our future and in the process reveal something of our present,” said Jonathan Mitchell, marketing director at Arjowiggins Creative Papers.
“It is an exciting opportunity to inspire a next generation of creatives and even provide a catalyst for previously un-thought of innovations that, with time, could become reality,” he added.
Creatives from various areas of art and design can submit their work for the online gallery between now and June 2013.

Once all the work has been submitted, mentors will explore the gallery and put the work they find most visionary in the time capsule.
The work will be preserved in Arjowiggins Creative Paper’s physical archive until it is relaunched in 2023 as a collective piece of art.
The project is happening in collaboration with D&AD, a leading body for the creative industries in the UK, and One Young World, an international initiative bringing together leaders of today with young leaders of tomorrow.
