The Longest Way  by Christoph Rehage

Every day for a year, as Christopher Rehage walked across China, he made a picture or video of himself, documenting his hair growth along the way. Day One shows him clean shaven, almost bald; he gradually turns into…a completely other version of himself. When he returned, he made this amazing little artwork of a video; it is way more than about watching someone’s hair grow.  3:40 minutes into the piece, it gets really moving and makes you think…

…about what time is…and how we change…and what we make along the way…share…leave for others to find…document….and if we were the same person a year ago, or yesterday?

It manages to look back and forward at the same time.
