“TIME AFTER TIME CAPSULE” by Sebastian Masuda
TIME AFTER TIME CAPSULE is an art project by Sebastian Masuda. It is part of an ongoing, multi-city participatory project with similar capsules displayed around the world. In each location, Masuda plans a series of children and family workshops collaborating with the community to create colorful objects using their personal items and donated objects from Masuda’s 6%DOKIDOKI fashion and accessories store. The objects are then used to fill the time capsule sculpture. All sculptures will be united in 2020 in Tokyo to mark the Tokyo Olympics, bringing together the contained memories from all the participating cities.
