Explore Flickr Videos On Flickr Clock by Stamen Design

Posted to Data Art  |  Tags:  |  Nathan Yau

Stamen Design, whose work you’ve most definitely seen, comes out with their most recent collaboration with Flickr, the photo and video sharing service. It’s called Flickr Clock. It lets you browse Flickr videos contributed to the Flickr Clock Group Pool. Videos are arranged as slices by time uploaded (or is it time contributed to the group?) and sized by their original upload resolutions. Click on a slice, and the video opens up like above.

Underneath is a time browser for a zoomed out view with chunks by the hour. Click, drag, and browse or just sit back and let autoplay do the work for you if you’re too lazy to move your mouse. The wider the chunks are, the more videos that were uploaded during the hour.

Flickr Clock isn’t my favorite Stamen work (that title still belongs to Cabspotting), but I like it. It’s fun. What do you think about Flickr Clock?
