Jete Laanemägi – Media in one single minute


After watching Life in a Day in todays class I remembered a small media-project that took place in my home country. The essence of the project was to capture a minute of your life at 1pm on the 24th of February – the Independence Day of Estonia. By that way one minute of history was written down with just photographs. The project was named Eesti Minut (A Minute in Estonia).

I see it as a way to give everyone a chance to do something more beautiful and meaningful than just a regular Instagram caption about your beef carpaccio or your new kicks. This is why I fall in love with my media again and again.

You can view the captions from: Choose a county from Vali asukoht and have fun!
