The Voyager Golden Records were two phonograph records that were launched into space in 1977 aboard both Voyager spacecrafts. The records contained sounds and images selected to portray the diversity of life and culture on earth, and were intended for any intelligent extraterrestrial life form, or for future humans, who may find them. The records are a kind of time capsule but, in reality, they in no way reflect the ‘diversity’ or life on earth.
Race + culture magazine Skin Deep will be back at Brainchild this year to run an interactive zine-making workshop, reimagining the 1977 Voyager Golden Record.
You will be creating your own Golden Record time capsule in response to the question: IS THIS THE END? (Also the title of their upcoming issue).
