On a mountain in West Texas, a team of inventors, futurists and engineers led by Danny Hillis is busy building a clock that will last for 10,000 years. But... why?

This video, shot by Public Record, probes the team behind the project and discovers a love of long-term thinking, a desire to slow down—and an insatiable thirst to solve problems.

You can find out more about the clock on the project’s website.
