One Year in Forty Seconds

I found this video--"One year in forty seconds," on the internet the other day. There have been several other similar projects. One of the best is below, Noah Kalina's "Everyday." All of these art projects remind me of the movie "Smoke." (1999) If you've never seen "Smoke," see it. I won't spoil the story by telling much, but Harvey Keitel's character completes a similar, bittersweet photographic observation of daily life. Someday, I'd really like to do something like this.

These are great CT....the trend now is to try and capture yourself using some of the fancy tools of the digital age in an attempt to create permanence. An artist did this only using still photos where the viewer had to look at each one and follow a whole wall of them from a few years of the artist's life. It was displayed at the DeCordova museum 2 years ago I think...
