An experimental philosopher from the University of Arizona has set up what he's calling the Millennium Camera: a device designed to take a single image of the Tucson, Arizona landscape over the course of a thousand years.

Creator Jonathon Keats says he wants the Millennium Camera to provoke deeper thought about the past, present, and future of humanity – and what our society might look like by the time we get into the 31st century.

"Most people have a pretty bleak outlook on what lies ahead," says Keats. "It's easy to imagine that people in 1,000 years could see a version of Tucson that is far worse than what we see today, but the fact that we can imagine it is not a bad thing."

"It's actually a good thing, because if we can imagine that, then we can also imagine what else might happen, and therefore it might motivate us to take action to shape our future."
