Incredible Boston Timelapse

Boston Timelapse

Julian Tryba gives a tour of Boston using a new technique called a ‘layer-lapse’. In the video description Tryba states:

“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.”

Audio track: “Make me feel better” by Alex Adair.
