I had the honor and privilege of shooting the Mass Art Alumni Time Capsule ceremony on Friday evening.
Last fall, experimental film maker and fellow Mass Art alum, Luther Price, told me that there was a time capsule buried in the central courtyard at Mass Art in 1986. My mind went, "What dude? What dude? What dude?"
He said, "Yea this will be the 30th anniversary. We should dig it up and have show!"
Originally I wanted to make a mini-documentary about it. Unfortunately we couldn't get the funding. So, we made still photographs to document the event.
Also unfortunately, the state agency who approves digs, would not let us dig it up on Friday.
All fun was not lost however. Current students and Alumni all contributed to a NEW Time Capsule, which will be unearthed in 2073, the 200th anniversary of Mass Art!. My film Leave Behind A Groove In The Earth, is literally IN THE EARTH!
Here we have non other than Mass Art Alum, total celebrity, and current Crypt Keeper of the Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM), Mr. Max Azanow! Here he is coming out of the current 2016-2073 Time Capsule! Good luck people of the future! You're about to get a big surprise under the school in 57 years! I'll either be 97 or more likely, in the earth myself! HA!
