Mirror City Timelapse by Michael Shainblum

America’s great cities have been explored from every conceivable angle by modern artists, but there is still room for fresh inspiration in photographic art like this.  Photographer Michael Shainblum has created a wild new style of urban timelapse photography using a mirrored editing technique.  He has produced a collection of kaleidoscopic timelapse cityscapes of cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Las Vegas.  He has blended them together into a single timelapse video called “Mirror City”, a piece of video artwork that yields “a plethora of visual stimulation”, in the words of the artist himself.  Enjoy the video above, and analyze the details in the gallery below.  [via thisiscolossal]
