Extraordinary in Ordinary: The Daily You

Setting out to rediscover the extraordinary in the ordinary and to uncover the hidden value in the familiar objects of everyday life, Albert Cheng-Syun Tang's project proposes a new kind of diary: The Daily You. Appearing as a simple mirror, Cheng-Syun Tang's design doubles as a recording device that snaps a single picture of its owner each and every day – doing so unobtrusively, catching them at their most natural and unaffected. Over the years, The Daily You creates a series of unique portraits – snapshots of specific moments that accrue value and meaning with the passage of time.
