The Evolution of Life in 60 Seconds

by Alex Mensing on April 1st, 02010

This video was created by Claire L. Evans and was commissioned by SEED Magazine for Darwin Day in 2009. By condensing 4.6 billion years of history into a single minute, the artist puts our everyday sense of time in perspective. This video was shown as part of our “Long Shorts” series of short films that convey long term thinking. This Long Short was screened at David Eagleman’s “Six Easy Steps to Avert the Collapse of Civilization” SALT.
