One Minute Vacation by Kevin Kelly

Once in a while something comes in that causes me to drop whatever I’m doing, and this brilliant form of communication by Kevin Kelly is one of them. Perfect for the 21st century. Less is better. Wow!

“One second per day for a 2-months in Asia.

I took a one-second clip each day on a two-month trip in Asia during April & May 2012. On a few days I just had to do an extra second, so this video is actually 90 seconds long. I was inspired by Ceasar Kuriyama’s one-second-per-day life summary. Since it was only one second per day I filmed it on my Lumix still camera; edited on iMovie. This is all the video I took. There is no more; but there are stills. I’ll eventually put them on my site at www.asiagrace.com. — Kevin Kelly”
