Super Trippy Abstract Time-Lapse Covers Everything from Riots to Decaying Roadkill

There are times where words don’t do a piece of artwork justice. Such is the case with Circle of Abstract Ritual: a trippy, creepy and downright weird time-lapse by artist Jeff Frost.

It consists of 300k photos captured over the course of two years. In it you’ll see riots, wildfires, decaying roadkill, abandoned houses turned into giant canvases and far more, all of it combined into an abstractly contextualized piece of time-lapse artistry.

The time-lapse covers a variety of techniques, from hyper-lapse segments to more traditional panning and motor drive sections.

These, in combination with the eclectic subject matter, turn the video into a strange narrative that was made as ‘art for the sake of art.’ As for how it came to be, Frost also created a five-minute behind-the-scenes video, which you can see below:

It’s 12 minutes long, so it’s not exactly a quick watch, but it will definitely captivate you — for better or worse — once you press the play button.
