Cityscape Chicago is a personal timelapse piece consisting of over 30,000 still photographs shot on the Canon 5D Mark III incrementally between July and October 2012 around downtown Chicago, Illinois.
The inspiration of this piece was my fascination with the city of Chicago, particularly at night. For me, there has always been a mysterious sort of feeling to Chicago at night, so I decided to explore and capture it.

An experiment with time remap. In fact just changed the cam : it was filmed with a Canon 7D at 60fps, making it really more smooth !
it was recorded as a funny pause while working on the performance "Cinematique" (vimeo.com/amcb/cinematique)... but this short dance is actually not in the show.
You can try it in real time in an exhibition called XYZT (vimeo.com/amcb/xyzt).
Just to explain : we have not invented this effect, we have just developed it to work on GPU at 60fps as a Quartz Composer plug in, it is based on sculpting of a 3D texture.
It's made with a custom Quartz Composer plug-in that transform a video stream in a 3D texture.
It can run at 60fps live at lower resolution (1024x512)

Window drawing (3m x 6m) @ Concertgebouw in Bruges inspired by the film Metropolis.
Metropolis is a 1927 German expressionist science-fiction film directed by Fritz Lang. Set in the year 2026, Metropolis takes place in a dystopian society where wealthy industrialists rule from vast tower complexes, oppressing the workers who live in the depths below them.
The drawing is placed on the largest window of the 'Concertgebouw' (Concert building) in Bruges with the perfect backdrop of the city. There are many different perspectives to the work wich has the effect of a changing picture throughout the day.
Filmed with a HDV camera (1920-1080, 25fps), slow motion was gotten from an interlace footage. Stage with black background and the subject was all dressed in white. The stroboscopic effect was made in After Effects with Echo plugin in default setup with max mode option. The result was inverted (negative image), effect gets also in After Effects.
