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!

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.
