Time-lapse of a 4,500 km trek


An adventurer has recorded his extraordinary year-long trek in a time-lapse video. 

Christoph Rehage decided to really mark his 26th birthday by embarking on a walk from Beijing to the other side of China (his initial goal was to walk all the way home back to Germany).

Filming himself along the way, he produced a time-lapse of his 4,500km journey, called ‘The Longest Way’.

The video takes us through his astonishing physical transformation, as well as the amazing landscapes and people he encountered.

Watch this breathtaking video below and tell us if it makes you feel intrepid.

‘Dancing House’ light installation


Dancing housesAn artist is presenting an interesting project for the Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. 

Klaus Obermaier’s ‘Dancing House’ interactive installation allows you to distort a house while you move.

Visitors can stand in front of the display, where they are invited to move their arms and bodies to change the building’s shape and hear the sound of the wind as they do so. 

As this festival becomes increasingly popular (over half a million visitors in the previous years), it has been named one of Europe’s top 10 light art festivals.

Watch the video below and tell us what you think about it.
