As smartphones and their every improving built in digital cameras become more ubiquitous, their applications (no pun intended ~_^) are becoming limitless. Enter Ceasar Kuriyama, who on the occasion of his 30th birthday, decided to capture the seminal moments of each day of his life in the form of 1 second video snippets, which he’s stringing together as a lifelong video memoire. Sort of his own, personal “Ode to Me”.
Details of Ceasar’s Project are posted on KickStarter, where you can become a backer for as little as $1 USD, download the app and start documenting your life right away.
Ceasar writes: On the day I turned 30 years old, I started recording 1 second every day for the rest of my life… and I think you should too. When I turn 40, I’ll have a 1-hour video that encapsulates my 30s. If I live to see 80 years of age, I’ll have a 5-hour video that summarizes 50 years of my life.
Each second has a story. I spent a couple of years saving enough money to afford taking a frugal year off from work. I wanted to spend it doing all the important things I never had time for… travel, family, and my own personal creative projects. This particular project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life that I think everyone could benefit immensely from doing it too. It’s easy to do—the process requires very little time or effort, but now I’m trying to make it even easier, so everyone everywhere can experience this exciting project. In collaboration with the extremely talented developers at Alchemy50 here in Brooklyn, I’ve spent the past few months developing an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do too.
