This Guy Made An Epic Time-Lapse Video Of Himself From Age 12 To 20

Look into Hugo Cornellier's eyes. Look into his dark, solemn eyes in total silence.

Think about your life, your choices, your path.

Watch the YouTuber's face change from a very serious 12-year-old to an even more serious 20-year-old in a time-lapse video of selfies taken every day for eight years.

Do not ask yourself why there is no sweeping music accompanying this evolution.

A butterfly does morph in its cocoon for four weeks (depending on the climate) only to emerge to Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor.

Only amid dead quiet can the viewer appreciate the precious nuances of a change so breathtaking.

Commenter Sam Sil noted, perhaps, the most moving element of Cornellier's project.

Sil shared,

I find it interesting that life is always changing, but the relationship with your computer stayed the same.

Amen, hallelujah, Sam Sil. Life is wondrous and, at times, so simple.
