The Camera

In a visionary project that seeks to bridge the past, present, and future, an experimental philosopher in Arizona, Jonathon Keats, has introduced the 'Millennium Camera.' Designed to capture a millennium-long exposure of Tucson, Arizona, this remarkable device serves as a testament to human imagination and the enduring quest to shape the future.

Keats, a research associate at the University of Arizona College of Fine Arts, collaborated with colleagues to bring this extraordinary concept to life. Positioned next to a bench in Starr Pass, the camera encourages individuals to contemplate the distant future by undertaking a photographic odyssey spanning a millennium.
