‘Digital Analogue’

The video above is a combination of old cameras mixed together with modern day sound and video editing to create a juxtaposition. It’s called Digital Analogue and was directed by Lu Sisi, a Glasgow School of Art student who made this beautiful stop-motion video out of over 6,000 photo stills. Not only that, but all of the sounds you hear in the video are taken from cameras, edited together to create a soundtrack of sorts.

I can’t even imagine how long it would take to edit something like this together. There’s so much going on it almost becomes abstract art. You can’t even tell that you’re looking at cameras half the time. It also reminds me of a giant clock, with lots of gears moving in unison to power one larger object. I have to say that my favorite part is when the focus starts to rise around the 1:15 mark and then stutters with the music. Too cool.
