You may have noticed how weird time feels this year.

Days can speed by, but weeks and months last forever. Or vice versa.

The strangeness of the year has been messing with our internal clocks and our sense of how days, weeks and months go.

Of course, it’s not always a bad thing for us to rethink how we understand time once in a while.

There’s an art project in California that does just that called Tahoe Timescape, and the timeframe for the timescape is one thousand years.


Conceptual artist Jonathon Keats has already worked on some long-term photography projects, including a project to take photos over one hundred years in Berlin, Germany.

It is at least theoretically possible that these pinhole cameras could capture images over these long spans.

For Tahoe Timescape, Keats says he’s looking to document how an area known for its natural beauty might change over the long-term, especially with the growing concern about environmental damage.

People a millennium from now could see what used to be there- it would be a window into the past.

But he says people in our time can also think about how the decisions we make now can affect what those future generations see in these pictures.

And hey, people of the year 3,020, when you’re checking out the photographs, why not also check out our podcast about the pictures too?


New York City is where King Kong ran wild, at least in the movies.

But a new statue in the city’s Bella Abzug Park wants to rebuild the relationship between NYC and big apes, and support efforts to protect endangered mountain gorillas.

King Nyani is 23 feet long, 8 ½ feet high and weighs over two tons – so it’s big – but it’s also shaped so that it can hug humans, a couple at a time.

I’m Brady, hoping it doesn’t eventually climb the Empire State Building,
