A Mesmerizing 'Hyperlapse' of a Russian Industrial Plant Getting Repainted

More

A drab facility in Pervouralsk, Russia, gets a colorful new look in this time-lapse video by Sasha Aleksandrov. Watch workmen rappel down the sides of buildings and swarm over the area in fast-forward. Even the camera zips through space, covering sweeping distances -- a style of time-lapse photography called "hyperlapse." The architecture website Architizer explains that it took Alexsandrov two months to shoot the sequence, moving a camera and tripod "precisely 29 cm" between still shots to create the impression of movement.
