Sriram Murali, an analyst at Google who’s also an amateur astrophotographer, has created a beautiful short film showing how light pollution hides the night sky.

LOST IN LIGHT features timelapses of the night sky from nine different locations in California and Oregon, each of which has a different light pollution rating. As you can see, the difference is absolutely shocking.

In fact, many of his Murali’s friends and colleagues believed he had created the starry sky in post production. Some of the time lapses took Murali up to three weeks to film, as well as countless hours driving to the specific locations, but the result was definitely worth it.

“The night skies remind us of our place in the Universe. Imagine if we lived under skies full of stars. That reminder we are a tiny part of this cosmos, the awe and a special connection with this remarkable world would make us much better beings – more thoughtful, inquisitive, empathetic, kind and caring.” (Sriram Murali aus HUH Magazine UK)

EVERYTHING by the artist, film and game maker David O’ Reilly is the film excerpt from the game of the same name, about which the ‘Spiegel’ writes:”EVERYTHING is a masterpiece and at the same time the craziest game of spring: from stone to rhinoceros, the player can be everything in it. ‘As a human being, you don’t always learn to take yourself so seriously.'”

And WIRED adds:”The dimensions that EVERYTHING takes on as well as the smooth gliding from the microcosm to the macrocosm and beyond, are mesmorizing. The game opens up unknown perspectives and in many moments reveals an almost enchanting beauty.”
