New York Biotopes

Berlin-based motion designer Lena Steinkühler pays homage to New York City in this weird video piece that depicts the metropole’s infrastructure as living, breathing organisms. In New York Biotopes, Steinkühler envisions the urban environment occupied by “abstract plants and creatures, which change their forms because of insufficient living space and adapt themselves to the surroundings of the metropolis.” From streetlights and subways to bridges and rivers, the city comes alive with frolicking physical objects, stretching and expanding like plantlife. It all adds up to an interesting clip that will have you looking at The Big Apple in a new light.
