A collaboration of William Wilkinson, Oliver White, Noah Kalina, and Adam Lisagor. Inspired by Noah Kalina’s Everyday project , this app reminds you to take a picture of yourself, every day and make a movie of your face. The app was created by U.S. photographer Noah Kalina, who stuck with the project for six years and clocked 2,190 images of himself getting older. He then made a six-minute film splicing the pictures together. It has now had nearly 19 million views on YouTube. So whether you had a bad day, or had your facial warts cauterized, or gained weight or lost weight, puffy-eyed from crying all night or blooming because you’re in love, it will all be documented because you’re prompted to take a photo of yourself every single day to make an album of you ageing. The app helps you orient your face the same way every day by creating a template for your face based on the first photo you take. So as the months roll by, you can turn all your photos into a film (the app will automatically do that for you).
As for me, I started the project yesterday, so now I have a whopping 2 pictures of my face. The more the photos, the more interesting the movie. My main target is to reach 365 days, a whole year’s worth of evolution. Then I hope to post it on YouTube or something. I guess it would be more interesting for girls, who go through so many haircuts (some unfortunate) throughout a year’s time, but it’s all good. I’d love to see how much I actually age in a year’s time. I’ll try to cheat and moisturize heavily, but I can defy time only so much. So, April 6 2012, I’ll be posting the results of my 1-year Everyday Project!
Here’s Noah’s video of 6 year’s worth of photos (he did his manually, no app to help him out).
Here’s my Day 1 photo:
