Benjamin Ducroz's Points in Space time lapse video ensconces our perception of animated motion in light with something akin to shimmering molasses, frantically boiling in singlesignal's sound design.
Ducroz created his video art work by; "using 1050 individual a0 sized frames with long exposure photography" and '"presents Melbourne's cbd’s cycles of repetition by responding to the flow of traffic at key intersections. bodies join, weld and converge into swarming masses of movement. this movement is present in each city around the world. the work presents how a city environment is controlled through organised systems. scenarios which may look like elements in chaos, work in harmony."
Although quite entertaining and somewhat a little to short at just over a minute, Points in Space was made for the Melbourne fringe festival 2011 as part of the Atlas program. Be sure to check out Benjamin Ducroz's other splendid video works, here.
