Blink and you’ll miss it. Calligraphy by foot and colorful casinos. This rapid-fire tour of Asia was compiled by Kevin Kelly, the founding editor of Wired magazine. Kelly is a writer/photographer/conservationist and all-around renaissance man, who filmed a one-second (average human attention span) long clip each day during a two-month trip to Asia in April & May of 2012.
Inspired by Ceasar Kuriyama’s one-second-per-day life summary, Kelly stripped production down to the basics; he filmed the clips on a Lumix still camera and edited them on iMovie. The video is actually 90 seconds long, but the images are so stunning that we won’t complain. The video aptly captures the experience of travel (of any meaningful experience really); you want it to last just a little longer. So take a few seconds and try to absorb as much as you can.
