The Kid Should See This

Umwelt – Time lapse flowers mix with real time insects

Watch as time lapse flowers bloom and wilt quickly beneath insects that appear to have been filmed in real time. Umwelt by Japanese artist Yoshiyuki Katayama is a fascinating digital mix of worlds and time frames. The word umwelt is German for ‘environment’ or ‘surroundings’, and is defined as “the world as it is experienced by a particular organism”. See similar clips on Katayama’s site.
