Consider the question: What object would you like archaeologists 1,000 years from now to remember our present day culture by?

Discover the story behind Future Relics, a project that used thousands of unique responses to this question to 3D print the archaeological artifacts of the future.

Created in collaboration with Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya museum as part of the landmark exhibition India and the World: A History in Nine Stories.

Official Google India Blog: Google Arts & Culture unveils the archaeological artefacts of the future

What object would you like archaeologists 1000 years from now to remember our present day culture by? When we launched our first lab experiment in India three months ago, we invited people, visiting the ‘India and the World: A History in Nine Stories,’ exhibition at the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) museum in Mumbai to respond to this question and by doing so their responses contributed to the design of a growing collection of vases, representing the objects that matter the most to people today. We engaged thousands of people, sharing their object in diverse voices - be it Hindi, Marathi or English.
