Motion designer Dan Marker-Moore has a beautiful collection of collaged time-lapse photographs depicting the light and color transitions in the sky due to the movements of the Sun and Moon. In his series, “Timeslice,” Marker-Moore layers images taken within seconds or minutes of each other, demonstrating the spectrum of beauty to be found in the (mainly) Los Angeles skyscape. His talent for capturing time-lapse beauty first came to the attention of the internet when his images and short time-lapse video of the full moon rising in LA, a series of 11 still frames that were captured over a time period of 27 minutes and 59 seconds, were featured by art and science blogs. Since then, he has added more photographs to his “Timeslice” series, creating a gorgeous collection of the sky in transition. You can check out more of his images via his website or Instagram.

Pool, The Alchemy of Blue by Australian artist Lizzie Buckmaster Dove poetically celebrates the relationship between the moon and the ocean. The stone-like pieces found in these images are the remnants of swimming pool found near the ocean in Dove’s hometown of Coledale. The nearby ocean was slowly destroying the pool with each tide. The two installations pictured here are a kind of homage to the powerful force of the moon on the ocean below. She constructed the circles below with her friends to coincide with the lunar cycle. One arrangement featured the concrete fragment’s blue hued side facing up for the corresponding blue moon. Dove and her friends organized an empty circle with the concrete at its perimeter for another arrangement to coincide with the new moon. [via]
