and... go! 24h world is launched

The world stands on the verge of massive change. From tectonic shifts in how we view ourselves as individuals and indistinguishable parts of a greater whole, to world market operating systems and our organic interaction with this place we all call home, by the time we're ready to turn the page on 2009, things are going to be very different.

Over the course of the next 52 weeks, the 24h World Project will seek to document this change in 24 unique date stamps noted in word and imagery by participants from all seven continents. Their submissions will be compiled into one video that will grow in length as the year grows in days, and available in full-text format in the pages of this blog.

The result? A look at who we are now, at the project's inception, and who we will be in 12 months' time, when the seeds sown in 2009 begin to emerge as the harvest of 2010.

This is us, the 24h World Project, noticing, taking notes.

It's time to begin.

Note: The first 24h World date stamp took place on February 21, 2009, at 12 noon GMT. The images and thoughts of those who participated from around the world will be compiled and released here in the next few days. Those who wish to join the project should email teamschott@roadrunner.com.

  1. Pamela,

    Very cool -- can't wait to see Feb. 21st added to the mix.

    Do I 'smell' and Oscar® nominated documentary short in the works?

    Keep Writing!

  2. Thanks, Mike. We should have the first installment up on Monday or Tuesday, depending on how things go this weekend.

    And... Oscar buzz? Already? I don't know about that, but I got a call the other day that piqued my interest. Can't say anymore yet, but stay tuned...

    Who knows where this'll go? I'm excited to see.
