Layer-lapse is a Timelapse-wherein the same scenes are mixed at different times into each variant. Julian Tryba has such a Layer-lapse created in Boston and not less than 100 invested hours alone for filming, once more 350 Hours for the whole editing Part, while more than 150’000 edited pictures.
Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein’s relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse.
