Hello Kitty ” Time After Time” Capsule

This is such a fun idea! Sebastian Masud, founder of Japan-based 6%DOKIDOKI, will be coming to New York in early May and will be bringing a giant Hello Kitty with him as part of the latest Time After Time Capsule project.

The Time After Time Capsule is a participatory art project where the general public can actually help in creating the piece. In this project, people can bring nonperishable goodies that will be placed into tho capsule where it will be displayed until September 2015.

If you would like to participate on the fun, be sure to check out the official RSVP page for the Hello Kitty Time After Time Capsule on Facebook. The opening ceremony will be on May 3, 2015.

This is a pretty cool concept considering many time capsules are buried and not seen until they’re dug up. Also, can you not like a Hello Kitty statue?!
