Speechless

So it turns out that there is a 60-second long video of a writer named Paul Conley staring into a camera. He doesn't speak. And the purpose of the video is unclear to me.
I bring it up here for two reasons:



Because the other Paul Conley doesn't say anything. And I have no doubt that silence would be more interesting than anything I will have to say to a room full of B2B editors.
Check out the video below.

  1. Interesting. They've got several of these minutes posted on their YouTube channel. Intriguing.

  2. Hi Jacquie,
    I tried looking at a few of the other videos....but I lost interest. I'm the sort of guy who is interested only in myself or people who share my name :)
    The videos appear to be some sort of content-marketing play by the designer who runs the site. But I'm not clear on what it is he's trying to highlight or promote.
    Anyone who is interested can see them here: http://bcjmedia.com/video#.UcC4ZefVCSo

  3. These seem to be artistic efforts which can be viewed as visual poetry. They remind me of the performance art by Marina Abramović, held several years ago at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. (For insight into that performance, search for the artist's name at the moma.org website). Interesting videos for those with the patience to acquire the requisite taste.
