New York Night and Day

New York: Night and Day is a combination of non-traditional video, time-lapse and animation by Philip Stockton. Often cities change faces by night. People, places, streets and cars turn into something different than they have been during daytime. Stockton filmed day and night scenes from around New York City and combined them back into single sequences using rotoscoping techniques. The piece explores the relationships between night and day, by compositing together scenes shot in the same location over a time period ranging from 4 – 8 hours.
