Flawed Symmetry of Prediction: time-lapse landscape, astrophotograpy and painting in high definition
March 2, 2012 12:38 PM   Subscribe

Flawed Symmetry of Prediction is a 4 and a half minute long video, compiling time lapse images of abandoned buildings in rural, desert settings, plus strategic lighting and an optical illusion painting or two. See also: On the Inside Looking Out (The Brain of Infinity), another "street art" time-lapse video. If you want to see single images in more detail, photographer/videographyer Jeff Frost has a portfolio site up with some of pictures.

A Making-Of documentary trailer (0:44) shows a glimpse of Flawed Symmetry of Prediction in progress.

You sure these aren't outtakes from Inland Empire?

Or an homage to 2001's voyage-into-the-monolith sequence, yeah. Really striking and creepy, thanks for posting it.

Even pleasantly creepy. While still being watchable.

Absolutely, you must turn your sound on for this. The soundtrack is a wonderful addition to beautiful photography. This is art. The audio belongs there. Listen.
