Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio; a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy; he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? Your gambols? Your songs? Your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar? (Hamlet, V.i)

Montréal | A Timelapse Discovery from Stéphane MONG on Vimeo.

This timelapse is my perception of the greatest Montreal’s architectures and structures.

I lived amazing experiences while I studied civil engineering at Polytechnique. I’ve just graduated months ago and before I move on, I decided to make this timelapse to keep remember all the wonderful memories Montreal gave me. Memories… which wouldn’t be the same without my awesome friends, thanks guys!
Finally, I want to thank my fabulous family for their support.

Hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed creating it !

Ce timelapse est ma perception des plus belles architectures et structures de Montréal.
La ville m’a fait vivre d’exceptionnelles expériences, lorsque j’étudiais encore en Génie civil à Polytechnique. J’ai gradué il y a quelques mois et avant de passer à une nouvelle étape de ma vie, j’ai décidé de faire ce timelapse pour toujours me rappeler de ces merveilleux souvenirs que Montréal m’a offerts. Des souvenirs qui n’auront pas été les mêmes sans mes formidables amis, merci à vous!

Finalement, j’aimerais remercier ma fabuleuse famille pour leur soutien.
J’espère que vous allez avoir autant de plaisir en le regardant que j’en ai eu en le créant !

Real-Life Instagram Turns A City Into An Indictment Of Our Distracted Photo Culture

Artist Bruno Ribeiro thinks we spend too much time taking photos with our phones. So he created an analog version of Instagram and placed it near London landmarks. Surprise: people took out their phones to capture the moment.

Walking down certain London streets, you’ll run into “Real Life Instagram”: an analog version of the app made of cardboard and cellophane and stuck to a post or wall to frame an interesting view.

The artist behind the project, Bruno Ribeiro, explains that he was inspired to create it both as a tribute to Instagram and a reminder that it’s worthwhile to occasionally leave your phone in your pocket.

“I’m a huge fan of Instagram—both the app itself and also the way it changes our habits,” Ribiero says. “It brought photography to our daily life, not just when we’re on vacation. It made us more observant of details—things we haven’t seen before, and it made us learn more about photography in general.”

On the other hand, he says, Instagram is just another way that we stay tethered to our phones, and he wants to help push people to disconnect. “I’m from a pre-Internet generation,” he says. “I’m 35 years old—I’m kind of an old guy. I think the obsession with being connected 24/7 is kind of weird. I’ve been living abroad for a long time, so I see technology bringing people who are physically far away closer, but it’s simultaneously pushing people away from their own neighbors.”

The project, he hopes, will help people take a moment to notice things about the city. “I want to say, look at this amazing cathedral you’re missing because you’re checking your email,” Ribiero says. “But I also want to bring a little joy to people’s lives—it’s not that I want to be very serious and make a statement. I don’t want to preach. If people are commuting and see these on a lamppost or a wall, and they smile, for me, it works.”

Love this project

Interesting idea!
