Cars of San Diego

We've seen the work by Cy Kuckenbaker before on this blog.

Back then, he had put together all the landings and departures from San Diego airport in two short videos.

His newest piece of work involved taking 4 minutes of raw footage from a San Diego highway (California State Route 163) and organizing the cars that passed by based on colour.

From the creator:

"The source footage for this video is a 4-minute shot from the Washington Street bridge above State Route 163 in San Diego captured at 2:39pm Oct 1, 2013. My aim is to reveal the color palette and color preferences of contemporary San Diego drivers in addition to traffic patterns and volumes. There are no CG elements, these are all real cars that have been removed from one sample and reorganized."

First, here's the raw footage:

And here's what he did with it:

Very impressive.
