The Boston Layer-Lapse
Time lapse videos are old news. Yes, they're still cool, but if you really want to make a difference we suggest you start making layer-lapses.
This one features Boston and below are a few words by the maker, Julian Tryba, who spent 100 hours shooting and 350 hours editing the 150,000 photos he took.
Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein's relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.
