10 Things You Would Put in a Time Capsule by Mary Manning

Slow and Steady Wins the Race has always addressed the issue of time by proposing ideas that balance the timely with the timeless. For our blog we asked friends, family and other people we admire to share with us what they would put in a time capsule.

Now that we are back in the city with yet another fashion month behind us, we are pleased to be joined by an expert blogger extraordinaire as we resume our Time Capsule series.

Mary Manning is an artist, photographer, and cinephile living in New York City. Her blog, Unchanging Window is a photographic essay of her life: the colors, forms, art & music that inspires her. Last year she curated a show in Los Angeles called, CHUMS, which united real objects among online friends at Space 15 Twenty.
