This is a manipulation of a time-lapse movie of clouds. I started with this clip by Matt Conroy: vimeo.com/1908323 and then applied the technique that Don Whitaker shows off in this video: vimeo.com/1398634 (which also has good music!)
The video basically turns time sideways. The first frame of this video is composed of the leftmost column of pixels from every frame of Matt's video. The next frame of the video is the 2nd column of pixels from the left in every frame of Matt's video. And so on.
I wrote a program in Processing to do this. It crashes about every 50 frames, so I have to keep restarting it. Something to do with the Quicktime component. Bah.

Hmm…it looks like things are taking a while to load. Try again?
