Perhaps you know Cy Kuckenbaker from his plane project in 2012. This time he finds patterns in traffic. Very interesting project by creatorsproject (Vice).
"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."
