We Were team of four. Archaeologist/fine arts PhD, Architects with Masters Degree and PhD and Lonely Computer Scientist.
Our idea was to improve Protection for records and design event around what we should send in SPACE.
We moved from "2D" to 3D and our sphere is acting as instruction manual and protection layer.
Inside ball we have 5 open spaces where are located redundant instructions, 3 gold plated Vinyl Discs and Phonograph head.
First disc is all about Science stuff, our progress in Physics, Math, Astronomy, and so forth.
Second Disc is all about Humans, out daily life, emotions, relationships, art, culture.. we want to think that designing of this disc should be global effort so that every country could take part in great journey.
Third disc is about Stuff around us, Animals, environment, noises...
by separating disc like this we want to have more representation of humanity, what we have achieved at this moment and how we want to see ourselves in future.
With this design we want to leave our small hand print in space, chances of someone finding it is pretty much zero but as Carl Sagan said it earlier: The spacecraft will be encountered and the record played only if there are advanced space-faring civilizations in interstellar space, but the launching of this 'bottle' into the cosmic 'ocean' says something very hopeful about life on this planet.
