Timelapse Intersection Articulée à Montréal
In October, 2011, the Contemporary Museum of Monteral presented "Intersection Articulée", an interactive installation from Rafael Lozano-Hemmer. It was composed of 18 projectors of 10k watts each, visible from ~9 miles (15km) away. Here's some time lapse video results, with music.

"Where I come from, a little patience at the crosswalk usually rewards me with a stoplight-induced pause in traffic, but here things are different. One had to simply cross, stride forward into the asphalt gauntlet with no fear, just faith that two intersecting streams of traffic, both vehicular and pedestrian, would reconcile themselves. And they always did." Photographer Rob Whitworth
stitches together 10,000 images to bring you a very kinetic time-lapse video of "Traffic in Frenetic HCMC, Vietnam."

"Last year, Kien Lam
quit his job, packed a bag with his camera and bought a one-way ticket to London. This video is a compilation of the time lapse vistas
that he captured across the next 17 countries. In crowded cities, in jungles, libraries and ancient ruins, Lam captures scenes familiar to those that live there and foreign to those of us that don't."*

We've all seen variations on the personal time-lapse video -- a snapshot every day for six years
, or a look at a young girl's first decade
. But nobody's done it quite like Sam Klemke
. For thirty-five years the itinerant freelance cartoonist
has documented his life in short year-end reviews, a funny, weary, eccentric, and hopeful record dating all the way back to 1977. Recently optioned for documentary treatment
by the government of Australia
, you can skim Sam's opus in reverse in the striking video "35 Years Backwards Thru Time with Sam Klemke,"
an ever-evolving home movie montage that grows grainier and grainier as it tracks Sam "from a paunchy middle aged white bearded self deprecating schluby old fart, to a svelt, full haired, clean shaven, self-important but clueless 20 year old."

Time lapse videos can be breathtaking, lovely, and a joy to watch… but they can also show you something you may not have thought about before. Before I even read the caption for Murray Fredericks’ video called "IRIDIUM", I knew it was filmed in the southern hemisphere. Can you guess how? [more inside]

Four fast motion videos.
And two slow ones
. (You might want to open these in new windows. A funky nav scheme may not bring you back here with the "back" button. And it might show another video after the linked one. They really want you to watch their videos.)

This time-lapse video of an oil-painting being created
by Pablo Picasso is brief, but captivating. The clip is a scene taken from the 1955 French documentary "The Mystery of Picasso
," in which director Henri-Georges Clouzot filmed the artist painting 20 different pieces. Bizarrely enough, almost all the art created for the film had to be destroyed upon close of production due to contractual obligation. Via
