Video: This is not your usual eye-candy time lapse of a gorgeous landscape. This one — created by Jeff Frost — is different. Speaks directly to the feelings. It’s sometimes creepy, violent, and weird. And others stunning, beautiful, and relaxing. The same type of contrasts you find in real life. That’s why I like it so much.
Jeff used 300,000 photos to complete the video. He writes:
The news agencies I contacted had no idea what to do with time lapse footage of riots, which was okay with me because I had been thinking about recontextualizing news as art for some time. After that I got the bug. I chased down wildfires, walked down storm drains on the L.A. River and found abandoned houses where I could set up elaborate optical illusion paintings.
