Forward Exposure | 24 Hours of Grand Rapids

24 Hours of Grand Rapids

I have dedicated some time to creating a collection of time lapse videos across my hometown of Grand Rapids, MI.  The project is featured in Art Prize (2012).  This was a very demanding project, but I am happy to have completed it.  I have learned a lot both from technical ability as well as a bit of self exploration in physical limits and patience.  Each of these 9 locations required a 24 hour long dedication of sleepless activity in collecting individual photos which would later be animated at 7 frames per second to provide to a high resolution video of each location as an entire day passes by.

In total there are 3329 photos collected over 223 hours between 6.15.2012 & 9.1.2012

I hope that you enjoy 24 Hours of Grand Rapids!
Thanks for visiting.
