THE most dedicated piece of consumer generated content ever. Age time lapse 17 yrs in the making.

“Incredible dedication” – the only way to describe Dan Hanna who for the last 17 years has religiously taken 2 images of himself every day using a home made rig. Before you watch, just remember this started long before digital cameras were around…

Here’s the rig below, which Dan carried with him, even on holidays.

The rig dismantled below – you can see how Dan rotates himself by about 1 degree every day, so a full year means one complete rotation.

    It’d be Consumer Generated Content if it was advertising something, like the camera maybe.

    Otherwise it’s something someone made isn’t it?
