It sounds like a fun project, but one desperately in need of someone less up his own arse than this fellow.

Which is something I don't get about modern art: the second one artist does something, it's like it's taboo for any other artist to touch it. "That's been done!" they say. I can't see painting ever taking off if they'd taken that attitude in the paleolithic.

"What, pigments on flat surfaces depicting people and animals in scenes from life? What kind of derivative loser do you take me for?! That would just be doing what Ugg did!"

What might be interesting would be pinhole camera records of events: a single day's rock concert, a week-long convention, a year in Provence, all carefully taken with the right size hole and speed of film not to suffer over- or under-exposure.

Wonderful photo and wonderful way of linking back in time.

Wow. Good thing there's 1-Hour photo, so he won't have to wait too much longer to see how it turns out.

Forgive my ignorance ...
... but just how does a hundred-year exposure work?
