Burning Man 2014 is beginning right now in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. I’d heard that the festival had grown exponentially in recent years, but I had no clue it was this insane.

Vimeo user Roy Two Thousand has compiled a bunch of incredible time-lapse footage from last year’s festival that you have to see to believe.

timelapse-flowersopening

It took David de los Santos 9 months and 50,000 pictures to compile the following footage (the final video has around 5,000 images). He had to find flowers that would open fairly quickly; the interval between images was anywhere between 1 and 10 minutes. The flowers used include: Lillium, hibiscus, carnations, orchids, dandelions, lilies, daisies, alstroemeria, peonies and nigella damask.

Watch the video of the flowers blooming below.

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”.
