Mirror City Converts A Cityscape Into A Hypnotizing Kaleidoscopic Show

Photographer and “filmer” Michael Shainblum was looking for a new way to depict the cityscapes which he loves. This love combined with his time lapse skills created Mirror City a mesmerizing time lapse combined of mirrored photographs.

The movie combines the great American cities Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles giving each a kaleidoscope, unique and disorienting look.

Here is how Michael describes the video:

“I wanted to put man-made geometric shapes, mixed with elements of color and movement to create less of a structured video, and more of a plethora of visual stimulation.

The video starts off with simple mirrors and recognizable architecture, as the video progresses, so does the visual stimulation, showing the real abstraction of the piece.”#

    Very unusual and creative imagery. But the presentation would have been more effective if it was about 60 seconds, and utilized only the most dramatic sequences.
