To document his 30th year of existence, Cesar Kuriyama did just that and compiled the resulting footage into a six minute video, including his sister-in-laws horrendous hospital visit.
“After just six weeks, I realised I was going to be doing that for the rest of my life,” he told the BBC. “If I live to 80, I will have a five-hour video that summarizes 50 years of my life. At 40, I’ll have a one-hour video of my 30s.”
He eventually developed an app (obviously because that’s what people do) and insists the practice helps keep him in the moment or at the very least appreciate the mundane moments that makes up most of our waking existence — whether happy or sad.
