Austin based artist Shawn Smith has always been interested in the intersection of the digital world and reality, especially how we perceive the combination of pixels to represent nature.

Unimpressed with all of the footage and photography that was coming out of Iceland documenting the eruption of the volcano no one knows how to pronounce, Sean Stiegemeier travelled for four days to reach the island to shoot a series of timelapse videos.
Almost as impressive as the footage is the sub-$1,000 motorized dolly that he used for the timelaps pans. Sean used a pre-production version of the dolly, but Dynamic Perception is about to start taking preorders for their new product. See the motorized dolly in action.
The video shows the 7 Canary Islands from the point of view of the time, with slow and fast motion , throughout an entire year. Completely shotted in High Definition and 35 mm DSLR cameras, using timelapse and overcranking modes.
