Time Capsule 



Capturing past, present, and future is Chinook Centre's time capsule and fibre-optic constellation display.

Six feet underground, below Chinook's showpiece Rotunda, a stainless steel, negative-pressurized vessel will preserve - for future generations - items representing different aspects of life in Alberta today.

While the idea belongs to Russell Zied, the actual creator of the various elements of the time capsule was Canadian artist, Ludzer Vandermolen.

A digital clock set in the capsule's cover plate (also created by Vandermolen) displays the current time and Chinook Centre's precise position on the planet as it winds its way up to the next millennium and its opening on December 31st, 2999.
