Here’s another intriguing video titled Metropolis tracing the real and imagined development of Charlotte, NC by Rob Carter currently showing at a museum in New York.
Here’s a little background from the author:
Made entirely from images printed on paper, the animation literally represents this sped up urban planners dream, but suggests the frailty of that dream, however concrete it may feel on the ground today. Ultimately the video continues the city development into an imagined hubristic future, of more and more skyscrapers and sports arenas and into a bleak environmental future… this is less a warning, as much as a statement of our paper thin significance no matter how many monuments of steel, glass and concrete we build.
