Demolition requires as much planning and precision as construction works. Even when presenting processes at a much faster rate than they happen in reality, time-lapse is still able to isolate significant details of such complex works.
Changes to our surrounding environment is the focus of this week’s “Time-Lapse Trends”. Covering real and virtual worlds, we explore how the medium presents developments within these different environments.
Part II of this blog series continues to document time-lapse and its uses, beginning with the 1950s, taking us ‘Through the Decades’ to the present day.
In Part I of this two-part blog, we map out the history of time-lapse from the 1870s to the 1930s, featuring key interventions from the likes of Eadweard Muybridge, Georges Méliès, Dr. John Ott, and more.
