TEDxSydney 2019 “Legacy” Titles
Australian director and CG magician Scott Geerson and his crew at Substance open TEDxSydney for the third year running with another high-realism stunner to mark the 10th anniversary of the conference.
Scott Geerson: “The titles explore the theme of Legacy: wherein the past is preserved and gifted to the future.
“We store the knowledge of humankind in libraries. We conserve our art in museums and galleries. We hoard the genes of plants and seeds in the Svalbard vault and record and reproduce our lives digitally. If a legacy is something valuable to be passed down, we should be well on our way to the ultimate gift.
“When orbital construction commenced on the International Space Station Legacy X in 2019, it was the natural extension of these ideas. A safeguard. An archive. A collection that preserves and juxtaposes humankind’s achievements and the diversity of the natural world, asking us to confront the complex relationship between the two.
“Though valuable beyond measure, humankind’s true hope for the Legacy X remains that we need never use it.”
