A History of the Sky – Time Lapse of a Year

Ken Murphey; an artist, musician, and photographer; plopped a camera down on the roof of the Exploratorium in San Francisco. He set the camera to take a picture every ten seconds and then he left it there to do its work for a year. He took all the footage, brought it together, and created a video-mosaic of what the sky looks like over the course of a day for a year. One by one you can see the seasons change, the length of the day change, the weather, the height of the sun, the presence of the moon — it’s all there and it’s absolutely lovely.
