My average face from Oct 23, 2011 – Oct 22, 2012.

I’ve been taking photos of myself since October 23, 2011 in the spirit of Noah Kalina’s project of the same name. I saw this averaged image of his 12½ year video by Than Tibbets and wanted to try it with my own data.

For the first year I was taking the photos using the Everyday app for iPhone. The guides in the app have been helpful lining up the shots but I’ve moved to a bit more of a built-in solution: I’ve got a repeating alarm set up to go off at 6:38 each day and then I use the iPhone camera app with the grid to loosely set the shot.

I haven’t seen too much change in one year—the hairstyle is the same, a few lines have deepened—but I expect this to be ongoing.
