Mind-blowing new time-lapse technique called "layer-lapse" distorts reality in beautiful ways.

I love a good time-lapse. The good ones are so mesmerizing. The new technique dubbed "Layer-Lapse" takes the concept to an incredible new level.

Here's a description from the photographer Julian Tryba:
 "Traditional time-lapses are constrained by the idea that there is a single universal clock. In the spirit of Einstein's relativity theory, layer-lapses assign distinct clocks to any number of objects or regions in a scene. Each of these clocks may start at any point in time, and tick at any rate. The result is a visual time dilation effect known as layer-lapse."
Watch it in action using one of my favourite cities... Boston
