We recently happened upon this interesting time-lapse. Although it is three years old, "Passing Through" by Kristian Ulrich Larsen (idkul.com) and Olafur Haraldsson (olihar.com) presents a very interesting and thought provoking combination of time-lapse photography, special effects, music and narration.
The text used in the narration is from Nikola Tesla "The Electrical Review, 1893". You can learn more about this time-lapse project at https://vimeo.com/44193401.
Best enjoyed in full screen mode and HD.
