Flower Carpet, a tilt-shifted time-lapse in Brussels

Watch more with these video collections:

Every other summer since 1986, Brussels, Belgium hosts Le Tapis de Fleurs (Flower Carpet) at La Grand-Place. Flower Power in Brussels, a video by filmmaker Joerg Daiber captures the volunteers from 2018 as they arrange the colorful flowersβ€”more than 500,000 fragrant begonias and dahlias, along with grass and barkβ€”into the planned design. Via Wikipedia:

In 2018, the carpet featured cultural elements from the state of Guanajuato, Mexico, including symbolism from the ChupΓ­cuaro, OtomΓ­ and PurΓ©pecha cultures. In addition to the begonias, the carpet included dahlias, the national flower of Mexico.

The tilt-shift effect makes them and the flower carpet look miniaturized. Daiber filmed the footage from buildings around the Grand Place, including the 90 meter (295 foot) high tower of Brussels’ HΓ΄tel de Ville (Town Hall).
