1. If you have ever been in a wide open landscape the most interesting thing isn't necessarily the landscape itself, but what you see coming over the horizon. Growing up in South Dakota the landscape itself can be beautiful at times, but that doesn't compare to what the sky can do, especially at night. Combine that with the landscape, and it makes for great photo opportunities. More information and stills at dakotalapse.com/2013/06/horizons/

    Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead, Defiance, Battlestar Galactica, etc) once again helped me with some original music for the video. This time he suggested adding vocals to the mix. Brendan McCreary and his band (Young Beautiful in a Hurry) did just that. They came up with “I Forever” The single is available on iTunes http://tinyurl.com/pgrq45p , Amazon and other online sources.

    I shot Horizons from April - October 2012 mostly in South Dakota, but also some at Devils Tower in Wyoming. From the rugged Badlands, the White River valley and the Black Hills, the horizons seem to endlessly change.

    Experience the beauty of Mt. Everest at night in time-lapse. While most climbers slept, I attempted to capture some of the magic that the Himalayan skies have to offer while climbing to the top of the world.

    Here's a bit of what I endured at the end to make this possible: eliasaikaly.com/2013/05/into-the-death-zone/

    One of the most rewarding parts of the journey was being able to share it with thousands of students on findinglife.ca

    This time lapse video is comprised of thousands of photographs, processed and assembled on Mt. Everest.

  3. The streets are paved with paper. This delicate animation follows the charming rise and fold of a fragile metropolis.
    Captured by an unseen helicopter, the narrative unfolds through winding roads, erupting forests and emerging mountains.
    Paper City grows in one fluid take, with skyscrapers rising from the page – only to crumble, wrinkle and gently crease back into the ground.

  4. A scattered array of fifty mirror balls reflect light from three projectors, filling a room completely with small reflections, casting patterns that fill the visitor’s peripheral vision. Creating a curious space that alternates between a meditative state, and an uneasy imbalance. An experiment in combining a found object with computer vision to create a profound and unusual experience.

    Created with Jonas Jongejan at CLICK Festival 2013.

  5. User 632 is an installation that stores the behaviour of the people who look at it by monitoring them in return. It wants to know when and how a person passes by or if they stop on the way.
    All data is being tracked and displayed publicly. Passersby are stored as an annonymous number without any hints to their identities. Whoever comes to close to the camera though will be stored with a photograph next to their id.
    The installation is made up of three Kinect depth cameras that constantly look for movements which are then reduced to a simple directional line in space. When a visitor enteres a specific area, the algorithm is looking for a face. As soon as one is found a countdown appears that shows the time until a photo is taken automatically. At the same time the time a user is in the visible area is stored.
    This data (time, path and eventually image) are stored in a database, interpreted and displayed as realtime statistics.
