(Insignificant) Metropolis by Rob Carter

February 24, 2010


We previously covered Rob Carter‘s photo-work featuring cut photographic images and living plants used to display the morphing and recontextualizing of architecture and urban development. Here’s a sample of his wonderful stop-motion animation, time-lapse videos, in which he physically manipulates aerial still images of the city of Charlotte, North Carolina (both real and fictional), to create a landscape in constant motion. Made entirely from images printed on paper, the animation reflects on unlimited urban growth and with the passing of time, “our paper thin significance no matter how many monuments of steel, glass and concrete we build.”
