What is this *The 1 Minute Project:Thank-you for Your Time”?
In 1968 Andy Warhol coined the expression ’15 minutes of fame’ saying “In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes”
With the advent of YouTube it now is 5 minutes.
With society’s online attention span at the 2 minute mark we also have the 2 minute elevator pitch and if you are an actor you know about the 2 minute monologue.
I was watching a film called KOYAANISQATSI (Life out of Balance) when THIS idea came to me.
For 1 minute, challenge yourself to look into a video camera or web camera and just look into it without talking,singing,humming or making funny faces.
and then…Post your video.

We are all people watchers and voyeurs of sorts and I hope that this idea will spread around the world.
If the camera looks into the soul of a person then maybe for one minute we may get a glimpse of a fellow human being.
