Natural Phenomena is part symphony, part hyperlapse and part visual exploration of the tension between nature and the electric man. It is so epic that all I want to do is dissect it into every scene, organize them into a map and wonder at the scope of this project: Alaska, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Turkey, US.
One of the projects I’ve been toying with for a while is a Popcorn-based interface that would allow us to crowd source the specific locations for each scene on a time-lapse video. We’ve gathered almost 500 videos of most large cities around the world. Then use a map to browse the video library by location. Watching the variety of locations included in videos such as Natural Phenomena supports the notion that having such a library would perhaps inspire others to explore the world in a different way.
