watch your life flash before your eyes

Back at the start of 2009 I decided to make a project in which I made a self portrait everyday through the year and posted it onto flickr. This was before flickr got bought out by yahoo and had an air of excitement and a sense of community about it. Nowadays everyone's eagerly taking self portraits and posting them online, but back in 2009 it seemed fresh and exciting.

And so here they are, all 365, coming in at well under a minute. I took the idea of the super fast speed of 8fps and the music from the now defunct website Pummelvision (here's their old Twitter feed which scraped images from your flickr, tumblr and facebook accounts to create a create a video in which you could "watch your life flash before your eyes".
If you need more just go to YouTube and search Pummelvision.
