May 3, 2012. It might not mean much to you – just an ordinary day. But to my friends-of-a-friend, Matt Lemche and Chris Redman (who are old pals with my beloved Jenn Scott), today is a very big day.
Matt and Chris are working on something called The Decades Project. In 2002, they made a film where they interviewed themselves 10 years in the future. Of course, it would take 10 years to finish the project, so their “2012 selves” could answer the questions that their “2002 selves” asked. They threw a dart at a map, randomly picking the place they’d meet on May 3, 2012. And to show how serious they were about it, they each got it inked on their bodies with a tattoo.
I knew these guys (a little bit) in 2002. Watching this reminds me of how much we’ve all changed. You could call the project self-indulgent or navel-gazing, but I knowing these two, it will be humble, introspective, and riveting.
