Time Capsule Exhibit

Goals

Time capsule was a project for The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. IDEO.org was given the task to make a time capsule to capture pledges from world leaders at the Family Planning 2020 Summit.

Approach

The first thing my team and I did was to brainstorm how might we define a time capsule. Since the brief was very open-ended and the capsule had to be mobile, we wanted to find a way to tell a story in a short amount of time. After collecting stories from different countries and rapidly prototyping our ideas, we decided to tell five prominent stories of mothers, fathers, social workers, and young adults.
