I'm always impressed by the scope of the projects the Foundation undertakes and the complexity of the solutions they propose. Collectively, they think through components no individual would have considered alone - timed to the sun, sequenced to ever-changing chimes, housed in a mountain. Their work challenges us to not only think on a different time scale, but also in truly collaborative ways. Steward Brand notes that there is a problem of people not believing in the future. Through work that requires generational, collaborative thinking, projects like the 10,000 Year Clock inspire our belief in long-term, optimistic futures.
