Since September of 2010, I’ve recorded at least 7 seconds everyday of my day-to-day life. Every week I edit 7 of those 7 second-long clips together into (what I refer to as) a 7x7; and every year since 2010 I go back through the last year’s worth of 7x7s and pull 1 second from each clip used, resulting in a 1x365: 1 second for every day of the year. This video is *slightly* longer than the previous 1x365s, I usually go from Sept-Sept, but I wanted to reset the span of these videos to Dec-Dec. So, this year, I’m using footage from Sept 2012 to Dec 2013. So much has happened in this last year - nearly 200 days were spent working in a dark, stop-motion stage on BLANK; Xander seemed to age 2 years in just a few months time; I worked with one of the most amazingly-talented musicians on For Thousands of Miles; Erica and I saw old friends again, made a few new ones. Our close friend lost their husband, and then our family struggled with the loss of my cousin… to our family and friends, you are an inspiration, and we love you, these losses have been a difficult reminder to never take anyone or anything for granted. The song playing is ‘Repose in Blue’, by Eluvium - a very close friend introduced me to this song several months ago, during production on BLANK; and I think this song will always remind me of this time in my life, it somehow has a way of saying, without words, what the last 15 months meant then in-that-moment, and what they mean now looking-back.
