My America presents • LC #1118 •
The single biggest creative influence in my life the past several years was Mark Baumer. Mark died when he was hit by a car walking across america barefoot raising awareness for climate change earlier today. The only reason I have taken on the task of making daily videos again––most of which are viewed by no one––is because Mark's work inspired me to do so. I looked forward to reading his daily dispatches and watching his daily vlogs so much. He was profoundly talented and original. My condolences to his family and friends. If you can, please donate here in his memory here.

(Of course I had tons of technical issues exporting this video, and the audio/transitions are screwed up throughout, but I'm just gonna leave it as is. It feels right to leave it as is. Tomorrow is another day.)
