Amazing slitscan images

Ansen Seale's camera exchanges the horizontal spatial dimension of X with the dimension of Time. This is done by imaging only the Y axis (a vertical line of pixels) of the same scene over and over again, up to 500 times per second. The internal processor of the camera arranges these pixel columns side by side, building up the horizontal dimension of the picture plane over time. The images are time exposures in one dimension and snapshots in the other. In contrast to traditional photography, only moving or changing objects register clearly and still objects are rendered as blurs across the picture plane.

I took the first photo a couple of years ago in Amsterdam. Like many others Christian Guémy, known as C215, paints local faces because they reflect the personality of the city (a stencil art tradition). Here is more.

French street artist Zilda uses both paint and pasting techniques to create classical works that blend extraordinary well into the romantic backdrop of old Europe. The latest entries come from the city of Lisbon. Zilda:
" It is essential to know the social and architectural stratification of a city, to get familiar with its streets, its quarters, and to view that urban setting as a constraint that stimulates the staging of my ideas. 'Spotting the city' amounts to approaching it like an open-air museum where each wall constitutes a hypothetic painting, a backdrop already developing its own aesthetics and organization of colors and materials."
