Let’s be frank, 365 day long projects are nothing new. Cesar Kuriyama, Traci Bunkers, Noah Scalin, Sheena Matheiken, and Karen Amarotico are just a few people who have chosen to hold themselves accountable for producing something creative every day over the span of a year. I’ve made several attempts in the past yet each time the idea fell to the wayside. But just over a month ago I was introduced to Kuriyama’s project; he has recorded one second of each day on film and then pieced each frame together to make a movie. He has been working on this project for over a year now and has no intentions of stopping.
I love the concept of documenting everyday life; it exemplifies the fleeting nature of our time on Earth and encourages us to be present in our experiences. I know, for me, 365 days of the same thing may seem too daunting and would discourage me from attempting it. I have decided that every 30 days I will embark on a new theme. Throughout May I decided to film a second every day as Kuriyama did.
Tomorrow starts the next 30 days’ challenge: leave a piece of art in public every day. I will post the location of each piece along with a photo here on a google map; the art pieces will each have a tag attached with the map url so that those who find the piece can sign in and comment on the pin of that object.
