A 4K tilt-shift time-lapse – the kind of thing you’ve already seen applied to scores of Western cities –  imbued here with bonus uncanny valley strangeness.

Welcome to the North Korean capital – courtesy of a (presumably officially approved) feature by Joerg Daiber, who sez of it:

Pyongyang is by far the weirdest and strangest place I have ever been to. At the same time it’s also one of the the most interesting and intriguing places and unlike anywere else I have ever been to. You go there with 100 questions and you return with 1000!

Stunning timelapse footage of the Grand Canyon for the SKYGLOW Project featuring, among other things, a phenomenon called ‘full cloud inversion’ where clouds become trapped between the canyon walls, rising up to the brim of the cliff face like a sea of dry ice.

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.
