My Defective Ear

A 366-day pursuit in personal portraiture, presented by nige.

The challenge: to photograph, and post to this moblog, a portrait shot of myself, every single day, over the next year. Apparently, it's much harder than it sounds...

Perhaps more challenging: that i don't enjoy seeing my phizog in a photo at the best of times, and knowing that i'm probably going to annoy the hell out of the moblog community in doing this. So, sincere apologies in advance for this undertaking, but i just can't help myself. I promise to try and be creative, so you won't have to look at my mug every day.

Anyone interested in joining me? I think i'm probably going to need the company...

I've completed the year, and posted my last dailyme. Today, i thought i'd make one final final post. I really do hope that others will try this project, but if you're not convinced yet, maybe this picture will sway you: The entire year of portraits, fused together in one squizzare.

I merged the files together in picasa, and at 6400 x 6400 pixels it's quite a large piece (over 2.25m x 2.25m). I'm going to get it printed onto canvas very soon and hang this bad boy up somewhere in the house, so everyone can check me out again and again and again and...

See it larger if you're interested.

exactly what i thought when i saw this too! funny this is, some of the photos have been duplicated to make a square, so there are actually 400 pictures here. really not that many at all...

jc1000000 says:

ooh so we can play spot the duplicates?

20x20 square means 34 of them right? ok here goes...

1 down, 8 across = 19 down, 18 across
2 down, 5 across = 20 down, 15 across
1 down, 17 across = 20 down, 7 across

erm... Now i've got eye strain!

Would love to do it, but with a lack of Internet sometimes, I would have to bend the rules :)
