For Those Who See is a 2010 installation by Berlin-based artist Daniel Schulze that relies on a 7×7 grid of audio speakers to generate rings of fog that shoot upward from the device. The vortices appear for only a second or so, but are distinct enough that Schulze could then translate digital signals into fleeting visual patterns. The installation was a jury recommended work at the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival and won the audience award at the Create10 Student Design Competition.

Adrift: A Two-Year Oddessy Through the San Francisco Fog by Simon Christen

July 3, 2013

Shot over a period of two years by filmmaker Simon Christen, Adrift is “a love letter to the fog of the San Francisco Bay Area.” For the last two years Christen woke up at 5am and pored over weather data, satellite photos, and online webcams to determine whether or not the conditions were right to make the 45 minute drive to the Marin Headlands to shoot. Many days the filming was a bust, but occasionally the weather, light and filming conditions would align perfectly and he would manage to capture a few seconds of usable (and extraordinary) footage.

The resulting time-lapse film is nothing short of astounding. The puffy fog flows, undulates and seemingly swallows parts of the city in its perpetual state of motion. You might recognize Christen’s work from his other outstanding time-lapse, The Unseen Sea, from about three years ago.

You can see much more of the photographer’s work over on 500px.
