Sam O’Hare’s “The Sandpit”: a Revelation

The Sandpit from Sam O'Hare on Vimeo.

Artist Sam O’Hare’s “The Sandpit”, with music composed by Human, co-written by Rosi Golan and Alex Wong, uses “tilt-shift photography” to depict a day in the life of the City. Much of the action is seen from the Promenade and from the Brooklyn Bridge, including scenes of construction work on Brooklyn Bridge Park. It’s best played full screen in HD. Thanks to Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation’s Facebook page for the link.

    The desire to even dream of being able to imitate is the highest form of flattery. Very cool video.

    Wow. Very cool stuff. Claude thanks so much for posting this very interesting vid. If I needed a reminder of how truly insignificant I am, this depicts it to a tee. Couldn’t help feeling like an ant in a molehill. Thanks again.

    This is an amazing work. A great application of what I think should be called “time shift” photography. But more than the time, the colors are perfect. The effect is to reduce a busy world to the whole thing being a stage and us as little, meaningless toys hurrying about our unimportant businesses. This is a real achievement. Unfortunately, the elevator-like music is nowhere near as creative as the imagery. Think what a Paul Shaffer might have done with this if it were to be the opening clip for the show.
    Thanks to BHB for making it available.
