Video by CanvasPop: Mirror City Timelapse

Video by CanvasPop is a weekly blog series displaying awe-inspiring videos regarding art, photography, or design. Check back each week for a new post!

We recently came across this unique, and stunningly executed video by photographer Michael Shainblum titled Mirror City Timelapse. Shainblum specializes in mirroring images and videos, and has been doing so for about five years now. He recently took interest in the art of timelapse, which he wanted to explore in the exact same fashion.

The results were this amazingly psychedelic, kaleidoscopic video of various cityscapes.  The final video is complete with footage from San Diego, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Fransicso, and Chicago.

Due to the amount of work that goes into post-processing a video like this, it look Shainblum about 4-5 months to complete the project. We absolutely love the final look! What do you think of his mind-bending timelapse? We wish we could turn one of its many cool screenshots into a custom canvas print!
