The video below, by Arnaud Jourdain, is a time lapse animation showing five years’ worth of graffiti at 5a Rue de Verneuil in Paris. By shooting thousands of high-resolution photos over a period of years, the filmmakers were able to reconstruct the graffiti process and even separate out layers of graffiti, creating an impressive 3D effect, seeming to fly through exploded layers. It’s really neat. After the jump, check out the Google auto-translation in English (actually pretty decent) of the French explanation of the film.
Note: this is still a work in progress; as seen in the translation after the video, the right part of the wall hasn’t been processed yet, and I believe they’re still shooting new graffiti.
