One Million Years is a set of 24 works, 12 spanning past millennia and 12 spanning future ones.
On Kawara’s One Million Years is an ongoing epic work conceived by the artist in 1969, documenting the passage of chronological time. This 20-volume work is a typewritten record of one million years – Past and Future. Biblical in scale, each volume contains 2,068 pages. Past is dedicated to all those who have lived and died and Future is for the last one. The first reading of One Million Years took place in 1993 at Dia Center for the Arts in New York.
Kawara's interest in how our society uses dates to grasp time's elusiveness can be seen in the two–volume book project One Million Years. The first book, Past, is dedicated to "all those who have lived and died," and covers the years from 998,031 BC to 1969 AD. The second book, Future, is dedicated to "the last one," and begins with the year 1993 AD and ends with the year 1,001,992 AD. At the request of the artist, portions of the books have been read aloud in locations around the world.
The first audio presentation of One Million Years took place at the Dia Center for the Arts in New York in 1993, and has been presented at numerous venues since, including documenta 11 (Kassel, Germany) and Trafalgar Square (London, UK).

In 2004, the project traveled to Trafalgar Square in London for a continuous outdoor reading lasting 7 days and 7 nights Between 2004 and 2007, Candida Höfer realized the project On Kawara: Date Paintings (2009), which attempts to document Kawara’s oeuvre at the point where each work is hung in its respective collector’s home.
