I have driven through San Francisco many times for business and pleasure, and have always been intrigued by how its energy constantly changes depending on the time of day. Glimpses of tall structures casting shadows, observing lighting and framing scenarios, and colorful people performing urban rituals often seen from my periphery had an affect on me.
These glimpses inspired me to undertake a 4am to 4am 24-hour-long project to capture unaltered reflections hour-by-hour how the city, the traffic, lighting, commerce, and ultimately the people change… or do they?.
To show how the Internet is causing us to “drown in pictures”, artist Erik Kessels created an installation featuring prints of every single photograph uploaded to Flickr within a 24-hour period. The 1 million+ photos are piled up nearly to the ceiling, and spill into multiple rooms. The exhibit is part of an exhibition titled “What’s Next?” at Foam in Amsterdam.

Chris Kotsiopoulos of GreekSky created this mind-boggling panoramic photo of the sky that shows the passing of a day. He writes,
