  2. / About the Project

    As of today, it is estimated that there are more than 7 billion humans living on Earth.

    Humans have only been a glimpse in the Earth’s timeline, yet in the last 200 years the evolution of mankind has skyrocketed as well as the need for Earth’s resources.

    Skyscrapers are growing taller than the next, like huge trees battling for sunlight. At night, from a higher point of view, traffic evokes lava flowing down a volcano.

    Like a giant ant colony, humans have made this planet their own. But what about the Earth? Can we continue to take without consequences? The City Limits tries to show that even though we are the dominant species on the planet, there is something bigger than us.

    In Carl Sagan’s own words “Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us.”

    Human progress and technology are developing at exponential rates but at what cost?

    Where is the city’s limit?

  5. San Francisco, shot from Yerba Buena Island over the course of 4 hours; picture every 7-15sec.

    I decided to do another time lapse of the city from Yerba Buena Island. Last Tuesday a storm was passing by and I thought this might be the perfect setting.

    I found a great vantage point right above a cliff in an opening in vegetation after pushing through some trees and underbrush. Since it was a rainy day I brought all my rain gear with me. My rain pants and jacket kept me dry while the camera was wrapped in a transparent vegetable plastic bag from the Berkeley Bowl... All in all it was a pretty wet experience...

    As the sun set, I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping again for some more color in the clouds. I was just about to pack up as the city lights slowly became strong enough to illuminate the clouds. I decided to wait a little longer and see what was going to happen. Slowly the clouds started glowing and it almost looked like the city was ablaze. I am no arsonist but the bright orange against the dark blue sky looked beautiful. It got darker and the glowing city with the moving clouds gave the impression of a steaming city. Then the fog started to roll in and the view across the Bay got a little blurry. The mist started to form droplets on the lens and kept me busy cleaning it after every shot. I did this for a while but then grew tiered of it... So I packed up and headed home.

    I am really glad I decided to stay longer. I think nightfall saved this time lapse....

    I hope you enjoy watching it and please let me know what you think.

    thanks
