Building Time Lapse

I shot this time lapse video of the entire construction of the Douglas B. Gardner ’83
Integrated Athletic Center (GIAC)
, a LEED Gold-certified gym at Haverford College. There are 515 daily frames.

I used a Creative NX Ultra webcam mounted inside a window frame using a custom-machined bracket and controlled by an unattended PC.  A  single 640*480 pixel image was captured and stored locally at noon every day, even while I was away in Africa for several months. The music is Flight of the Bumblebee, from The Tale of Tsar Saltan, composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov and performed by the U.S. Army Strings. This project was made possible by funding from Haverford’s Athletic Department. Thanks, guys!
