Stop right now and click on the image above. It will enlarge to 1500 pixels wide, and you will see just one example of the epic work of my friend Melanie Mowinski. She is an art professor, artist and “lifelogger”, and the image here is a copy of her visual diary for 2011. In real life, this work of art is just 14″ x 22″ in size — each of the 365-day records is no larger than a small postage stamp. “The real actual days are like 7/8 of an inch by 1 1/4 inch or something equally ridiculous,” Melanie told me. ”…I use Uniball vision elite acid free fade proof pens.” Melanie has been making these daily records for 19 years. As in: The best time to plant a tree was 10 years ago, the second-best time is today. Read more about Melanie Mowinski’s work on her blog and/or jump straight to her gallery of Visual Diaries here. I need to say it again: Epic.
