35 Years Backwards Through Time With Sam Klemke
In 1977 teenager Sam Klemke started a project in which he would film himself annually, telling viewers the year and occasionally remarking on the state of his life.
Now it's 2011 and the professional caricature artist is in the fourth decade of his project.
His video is fascinating on a number of levels, among them: watching him change both physically and psychologically; the different moods he evinces even as he remains pretty much the same person through the many changes in both external and internal geography; the nature of the video and sound qualities of the footage as the technology improves.
