Inspired by some open source software developed by the clever guys at Teehan+Lax Labs, Google Street View Hyperlapse, I decided to recreate some of my first year in New Zealand with a virtual road trip at warp speed. Weeks of arduous image capture and editing has paid off in an entertaining experimental piece that will become part of my final presentation. All imagery was captured from Google Street View data and compiled, edited and manipulated to create the finished piece.
In some ways this is a reflection of spending my first year traveling around New Zealand, and living out of a car. Fleeting memories. A jumbled up mash of mixed images from my mind. Chasing the sun, avoiding the rain. Always moving while trying to remember where we’ve been. Looking at the ever changing sky in the Land of the Long White Cloud.
