The three-minute piece mashes up mirror effects with time-lapse photography – a favourite tool when it comes to capture a building’s essence.
The Atlantic Cities interviewed one of the music video’s co-creators, John Brown, who calls the technique “hyper-lapse.” Of his love for building photography, Brown told the Atlantic Cities:
“…taking photographs of buildings really started to change the way I looked at them, and seeing the animated results made me see the movement as a kind of empowering dance with these normally very dominating figures in our cities.”
So next time you find yourself walking down a city street, imagine that all those concrete and class structures are just really tall dance partners.
