We don't spend nearly enough of our time looking up. Fortunately, film maker Ken Murphy has done it for us, pointing a camera straight up, from sunup to sundown, for 146 consecutive days. It's beautiful.

The effect isn't just aesthetic. It's hypnotic. I'm struck by how similar most days look, but even more so by the minute differences that show up even among totally clouded over skies.

Murphy installed the camera atop the Exploratorium in San Francisco, and plans to continue building on the project until he's captured a full year. I can't wait to see the finished product. [YouTube via The Awesomer]
