Day fades to night, hypnotic GIF edition

Fong Qi Wei created these astounding animations from time-lapse photographs of cities and other landscapes, fading into darkness.

"This is a follow up to my previous series Time is a Dimension (TIAD). In TIAD, I spliced different time slices into a single print. That was to work within the nature of a physical print. However, in this set of manipulations, I present a medium that is neither a print nor a video. In short, I use the GIF format (don’t ask me how it is to be pronounced!) to create a looping animation that shows a single landscape / seascape but with a constant shimmer of … time."

Print series are available, for what it's worth!
