Stephen Hawkings Time Travellers Invitation

Kite Prints, die bereits den fantastischen Being For The Benefits of Mr. Kite-Print druckten, haben eine Einladung zu einem Zeitreise-Experiment von Stephen Hawking veröffentlicht. Im Experiment hat Hawking eine Party für Timetravelers geschmissen (es kam keiner), hat's aber niemandem verraten (wie gesagt: es kam keiner) und hofft nun, dass Menschen aus der Zukunft die Einladung sehen, zurück in die Zeit reisen und ihn auf der Party besuchen. Dass sie dabei das Raum-Zeit-Kontinuum kaputtmachen, ist ihm dabei anscheinend völlig egal. Mir aber auch, ehrlich gesagt.

Created by Peter Dean with the approval of world-renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, this poster is part of a real time-travel experiment.

Professor Hawking devised an ingeniously simple experiment to prove whether time travel to the past was possible. He held a reception for time travellers, but didn't publicise it until after it had happened. This way, only those who could travel back in time would be able to attend. The success of this experiment depends entirely on the invitation poster being seen by time travellers.

This is a beautiful letterpress poster, hand-printed with a visible impression in silver ink on archival black paper in a limited edition of 100 prints. It is designed in a Victorian style and, in combination with the subject matter, the poster has something of a steampunk feel about it.
