Different buildings an regions of New York city shot at different points in time, then layer and synchedideo artist Julian Tryba. To wit:

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. 1 Film, 22 Trips to New York, 352 Hours of filming, $1,430 paid in Parking Fees, 9988 Miles Driven, and 232,000 Pictures Taken.

I wanted to share this photo with you I made from last night. It’s a 1hr 23min star trail, with a little light painting. The structure is an 18th century stone Pyramid, in the Old Kilbride cemetery in Arklow.

Above is a timelapse video of the entire engineering feat, capturing the around-the-clock work undertaken.

You may already be familiar with the productivity sapping Google Maps Streetview Player.

Input any two locations. Allow a little load time, then watch a timelapse-style journey (composed of stapled-together Streetview images) from one location to the other.

And that’s the rest of the afternoon sorted.
