“Don’t undertake a project unless it’s manifestly important and nearly impossible.”
(inventor of Polaroid film)
The Impossible Project is getting closer to becoming a very possible one. I think this is an amazing undertaking and I get more and more excited about it everyday. You can check the site for updates. As of right now the project has 11,561,717 seconds remaining. Seconds-wise that seems quick.
So what is The Impossible Project?
Basically, after Polaroid announced that it would stop the production of instant film (so sad!), The Impossible Project bought up all of all of Polaroids dead stock along with the machinery and equipment at Polaroid’s Netherlands factory. (so happy!) The plan is to re-start the production of analog instant film in 2010
There is so much work going on and there are lots of ways you can show your support… 2010 is not that far away and it’s totally possible!
