Sometimes the world in this video by Joe Pease is mirrored horizontally, like a city folding itself on top of itself. Other times, it’s mirrored vertically, like in perfect symmetry. But what makes the video even more mind bending than seeing a world mirrored is seeing how certain people are able to break it and seamlessly transition from one world to the next.
This clever video perfectly captures the chaos of Shanghai—or any city, really—by showing how people can seem alone even if they’re surrounded by millions of people. JT Singh, the media artist in the video, walks forward while the rest of the world is walking backwards in the reversed footage and it’s so surreal to see.
There have been other great alpine ski runs. More epic, difficult, or far more dangerous but this one, by the World Champion alpine skier Marcel Hirscher, is the prettiest and most colorful I’ve ever seen—and it’s environmentally friendly. They claim they only used 100% natural materials to make the color effects.
