Time Collapsed Video: 20 Minutes of Kite Flying

Kite

The 6th instalment of The San Diego Studies (a series of shorts that collapse time to highlight the unobservable aspects of the city filmmaker Cy Kuckenbaker lives and works – previously featured here and here), is beautifully simple. After suffering a shoulder injuriy, Kuckenbaker started flying kites at the beach in lieu of surfing or swimming. Unlike the other shorts in the series, this video is just Kuckenbaker, his kites, and a glimpse of Tijuana in the background. Check out “20 Minutes of Kite Flying Time Collapsed” below!
