On his 30th birthday, Cesar Kuriyama quit his job in advertising. At the same time, he started a project: "One Second Every Day" for which he cuts together one second of footage from every day of his life into an ever-expanding project. We've seen these daily-picture kind of projects before, but this is certainly ambitious. As Kuriyama explains, it's a project he plans on conducting for the rest of his life.
We take our cameras out when we’re doing awesome things; we rarely do that when something horrible is happening. (Cesar Kuriyama)One of the reasons why I find social media/ blogging and all that jazz interesting is that we have no external editor, reams of stuff is expressed by masses of people every day, and why not? Of course I’m not going to read it all, but the unaffected honesty of it all is charming. The freedom to choose what I want to learn about, and to hear and weigh up many perspectives from many different lives is great too.
