Passing Through

Timelapse of the Week – August 6, 2012

The narration, text, streaks of After Effects light…  It all adds up to one really innovative piece of work.  Olafur writes:

The text used for the narration of “Passing Through” is part of a speech Serbian scientist and inventor Nicola Tesla delivered in 1893 at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia. Though today less known than figures like Edison and Einstein, Tesla was more or less the father of much of our modern technology, since he among other things developed the foundations of the European electrical system based on alternating currents and the principles of wireless radio communication.
