Time Collapsed Video: 20 Minutes of Kite Flying


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!

VIDEO OF THE DAY: San Diego’s Midday Freeway Traffic Reorganized by Colour





Cy Kuckenbaker continues to experiment with collapsing time. You may remember his brilliant video: “5 Hours of Airplanes Landing in 30 Seconds”. Here he reorganizes San Diego’s midday traffic, by colour. There is no CG here, these are all real cars, they have just been re-ordered.

In many ways this reminds me of those “Time-lapse photos by Pelle Cass”.
