Here’s a little comic titled “Art Project” by xkcd that pokes fun at the way people are using cameras to capture the passage of time and create art. One of the pioneers in this space was photographer Noah Kalina, who has been shooting a selfie every day since the year 2000. His latest “Everyday” compilation video released in 2012 showed 12.5 years of his life in 7.5 minutes. People have since taken this project into all kinds of creative directions.
In case you didn’t catch it: the two people on the left are simply capturing an ordinary photo and 24fps video, respectively.
