My human time

Man sits in front of the camera for 24 hours. The result is 3 videos, each 8 hours long. Every minute his computer chimes, and he says what time it is. He claims this is the "most boring video ever." He's possibly correct.

I suppose that if you managed to sync the time in the video with the time in real life, you could have the video running continuously and use it as a speaking clock. Or you could just ignore the video, like the rest of the world.

Andy Warhol is infamous for doing a lot of the same thing, where he would set up a scene, turn on the camera and let it run until the reel was exhausted. The reels would then be shown one after another in a setting.

"Sleep" runs slightly more than five hours and "Four Stars" about 25 hours. Can you imagine sitting through those?

When I was in college the guy in the apartment upstairs was a speaking clock.
Whenever I wanted to know what time it was I would crank the stereo and he would tell me "Turn that damned thing down! It's 3 o'clock in the morning!" or whatever.

But, for the love of God, WHY? Almost anything else would be a better use of time. Unless you are recording the voice over for a clock for the blind.

The CIA could use this on the opponents of democracy as a torture tool.
Hijack the internet/radio/TV and it would drive them mad for sure.

How much do you figure I could make for an accurately described video of 'Paint Drying'?

Note my lack of response to this post and deem it as way of ignoring this 24hr clip.

Today is one of those days when I feel like exerting just a little less energy that this guy.
