An optical flow through urban environments clashing with nature. Optical flow is used to smear out movement in time, revealing patterns and enhancing our view on how people and their vehicles move through the urban landscape. Long exposures can create a similar smearing effect but the movement of the sequences in this video is “real time”, not slowed down by long exposure. The ghostly images that remain after processing are then combined with manipulated video taken of natural phenomena to reveal similarities and create conflict.
