Walking slowly down creeks, trails and pathways, I wear a hard-hat-mounted camera set to automatically take a photograph every 5 seconds. I record the ambient sound at the beginning and end of each walk.
The fast photo-walk (hyperlapse) videos I create present the images (sometimes thousands) sped up to a magnitude of 125:1, whereby each second of video represents more than two minutes of real-time. The sound plays in real-time–crossfading from the beginning to ending ambience.
The videos are intended for collection, and exhibition in single or multi-channel installations.
