Ten Years and One Day - every day - on Polaroid Answered

I recently came across this story in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and wanted to share it with the Instructables community.

Artist Marc Tasman made a Polaroid self-portrait every day for 3,654
consecutive days--July 24, 1999- July 24, 2009--that's 10 years and 1
day. He says that if you laid the nearly 4700 photos made in that time
side by side, they would stretch about 4 football fields or a quarter
mile! The "Ten Years and One Day" video mashes time -- 5 minutes and
27 seconds of it -- compressing that distance (and decade) into a
trippy package.

You can view his work at the followitng sites:
