Time Lapse

Playing with Time and Space!

Everything is in motion. We see the movement of everyday life, traffic, people walking, leaves rustling in the breeze, the rolling, breaking waves of the ocean surf. But what about the movements that are too slow to be easily perceived? The shadow of the sun moves surely but slowly across every surface it falls on, from dawn to dusk, whenever the sky is clear. With a camera set to take pictures at regular intervals, you can make movies that show this grand movement, this sure sign that our earth is in motion all the time. A simple app for your phone will get you started!

Set up a camera with an interval timer, and make your own time lapse movie of the sun’s shadow.
