Six years of Noah

A fascinating photo montage of a man aging at warp speed.

Noah took a photo of himself every day for 2,356 days (Jan. 11, 2000 to July 31, 2006), according to this post. We know nothing more about it than that, except the score ("original music by Carly Comando") sounds like Philip Glass, and the sad, dark eyes of Noah -- who resembles an older version of that kid from "The Ring" -- don't change much through the march of time. But they do change a little -- maybe a little warier, a little colder -- which is more interesting to watch than his experiments with the sideburn. Noah appears to still be a young man, and he calls his little experiment "a work in progress." But as we watch his hair grow and dance and then subside like a time-lapsed film of a flower, our heart can't help but swell a little because, of course, we know how this story always ends.
