Nature shows the passing of time very elegantly by changing it’s appearance through the 4 seasons of the year I decided to make a time-lapse of this metamorphosis of nature during 1 year in the Wertheimpark and to transform it to a one minute experience.
After one year, thousands of time lapse photo’s further and the technical assistance of Bas Stoffelsen from Time:Writers, I was able to reposition this condensed piece of time at the exact spot in the park where it was taken from, which created the hallucinating image that a part of the park was moving in a different time frame as the surrounding area, as if you were looking through a hole in space and time.
