SameTime 1:04 is a spontaneous photography project taking direct inspiration from SameTime 7:15 (Michael Lease, Kate Macdonnell, Bryan Martin, Jesse Sommerlatt, Brad Walker, and Soung Wiser; http://www.sametime715.com).

After hearing about SameTime 7:15 from our teacher Michael Lease last semester, a friend of mine approached me and asked me if I wanted to join her and two other people in the SameTime 1:04 project. I was uber excited to join the project. The members of this project, Amber Bender, Ben Hostetter, Rachel Rainer and myself. I saw this project as an opportunity to make an image everyday and work on my creative abilities. I thought it would be useful to force myself to take at least one photo everyday. However, in our project, the text is almost as important as the image. Sometimes the text seems more meaningful than then image and other times it is the other way around. It is challenging to find time to upload the an image everyday, but taking the image has become routine. I like the fact that I have incorporated SameTime 1:04 into my day to day stage. In addition, I like the challenge of taking different images in a familiar place. For instance, I have class two times a week at 1:04 which forces me to be creative with my shot so viewers are not seeing the same image two days a week.

Overall, even though we based this project off someone else, this is a good exercise.  And while we understand that there could be many improvements to the format and style of the project, our group looks forward to the final project and working hard to make this project a success.

  1. Yeah, that's what I'm talking about! If ind it interesting that this type of projects can be addressed in a couple of different ways. At the heart of it is the personal way that you the artist addresses it. You are participating directly within the concept, so your personal experiences are good to explore and highlight. The way others might look at it will always be totally different.
