Craig Mod:

We’re closing on September 1, 2016. But, paradoxically, there’s never been a more meaningful moment to join. We’re making a “book.” We’re printing — using a microscopic ion-etching process — the entire website upon a 2" × 2" nickel plate, giving it a fire- and saltwater-resistant shelf life of 10,000 years. At least five plates will be produced, to be held by five stewards — museums and libraries — around the world. A seed bank of our moments as connected to place. We met with the collections director and preservation specialists at the Library of Congress in early April of 2016, and the Library has agreed to be our first official steward.
