Time running parallel

In Waters Re~ artist Xárene Eskandar placed video of the same landscape at different times of day in parallel.

They capture the subjective and perceptual qualities of time expressed as events, moments, memory and landscape. The goal is to break the linear experience of time, allowing viewers to perceive multiple times within a single viewpoint. As a result insignificant moments become significant events, heightening one's experience of the landscape and one's existence in that particular moment in time and space.

The results are beautiful. [via FastCo]
