Created by filmmaker and photographer Michael Shainblum over the course of four months, “Mirror City” takes scenes from some of the great American cities – Chicago, San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas and Los Angeles – and processes them through kaleidoscopic visuals. The 4.5-minute video starts off rather simply with recognizable architecture before increasing visual stimulation kicks in, revealing the beauty of abstraction. The hypnotizing short film features the track “Butterfly” by Bassnectar.
