A photo of everything touched, for 11 years

Posted to Self-surveillance  |  Tags: ,  |  Nathan Yau

Artist Alberto Frigo took a picture of every object he used with his right hand for the past 11 years. Averaging 76 photos per day, the project — Images of the artifact used by the main hand — is low-tech, with just a small, hand-held camera. No internet connection, tagging, or documentation. Just a stream of photos.

Frigo aims to do this until age 60, so he has only 25 more years to go. Yep.
