Mosaic Time-Lapse Chronicles History Of The Sky Above San Francisco

Mosaic Time-Lapse Chronicles History Of The Sky Above San Francisco

A San Francisco artist has looped a year's worth of images of the sky into a single, calendar style, time-lapse video.

Observe clouds drift by, storms roll in, and the clearest blue hue fade to gray simultaneously in Ken Murphy’s stunning A History Of The Sky, a yearlong time-lapse video of the sky above San Francisco’s Exploratorium Museum.  By installing a camera on the museum’s roof, Murphy captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds for 365 straight days.

Rather than re-create the typical time-lapse sequence, Murphy opted for a tiled mosaic of 360 days, with each tile arranged chronologically representing a 24-hour period in a single day starting just before sunrise. Immerse yourself in the resulting HD version of the video, as it’s hypnotic to sit and watch the sky in this manner.
