So, I'm an artist. I live in New York, and I've been working in advertising for -- ever since I left school,
so about seven, eight years now, and it was draining. I worked a lot of late nights.
I worked a lot of weekends, and I found myself never having time for all the projects that I wanted to work on on my own.
And one day I was at work and I saw a talk by Stefan Sagmeister on TED,
and it was called "The power of time off," and he spoke about how every seven years,
he takes a year off from work so he could do his own creative projects, and I was instantly inspired, and I just said,
"I have to do that. I have to take a year off.
I need to take time to travel and spend time with my family and start my own creative ideas."
So the first of those projects ended up being something I called "One Second Every Day."
Basically I'm recording one second of every day of my life for the rest of my life,
chronologically compiling these one-second tiny slices of my life into one single continuous video until,
you know, I can't record them anymore.
