Year long sky time lapse of San Francisco

November 17, 2011

This is a pretty unique time lapse video. Instead of looping through 365 days in one video, each day gets its own movie in a grid.

A camera installed on the roof of the Exploratorium museum in San Francisco captured an image of the sky every 10 seconds. From these images, I created a mosaic of time-lapse movies, each showing a single day. The days are arranged in chronological order. My intent was to reveal the patterns of light and weather over the course of a year.

I have lived in San Francisco. One of the things I wasn’t a fan of was the weather. There were just too many days where the fog rolled in and there was a biting wind. Without the fog and wind the temperature would have been perfect, hoving around 70 degrees. However, with the fog and/or wind the temperature drops to the mid 50s and that is just not acceptable.
