Time-lapse human growth project

time lapse movies of people from birth to death

I've always thought that the one experiment that might make having a kid worth while would be being able to do a time lapse movie of that kid growing up -- by putting him or her naked in the same camera closet once a week for his or her entire life. But seeing as that would probably fall apart as soon as the kid got a mind of his or her own maybe a college should do a project like this with a lot of kids so that some of them could drop out and the whole project wouldn't be a bust. It would be educational to have time lapse movies of people going through all of life's stages.

Time-lappsed brain growth to fifteen years.

       A lot of people would get after you aboujt using "child" and "no clothes" together. A lot of people.

       Some fellow did that--took pictures every year at their beach vacation, of the kid bare nekkid, same place, same pose. Educational, yeah, except it was his daughter, and the pictures were published in Playboy magazine, IIRC. I think they pretended it was artistic, but it was at least 15 years ago.
Make the clothes part of the stages one goes through. Then all you have to do is go through school yearbooks to find your photos.

       I have behind my door marks of my height at different points. I always thought it would be cool if my parents took pictures of me too, so I could see how I grew. Never thought of submitting it to the 'bakery.

       You could start from the inside out. [link]   

       The BBC did something similar to this once on some medical programme or other. They asked for a sequence of full-length photos taken at annual intervals and arranged them in a sequence at a fairly low frame rate. One of the odd things i remember about it was that the moles on the person's face appeared to migrate across it.

       The BBC also did a video time-lapse of a pregnant lady, by filming her walking on a treadmill every week throughout her pregnancy, then morphing the films together.

       Yes, i remember that too. You could put the two together, or maybe it could begin with ultrasound scans followed by photography.

       What about all the annoying naked baby pictures, DesertFox? People seem fine with them.
