Watch CHASE, a Short Film That Hypnotically Chronicles the Passage of Time

Time is the one thing no one can change, and it only flows in one direction. From moment to moment, we can only perceive the passage of time with the evidence of our senses. But as a new short film demonstrates, people, places, and shapes can bleed into each other in mesmerizing ways simply by speeding up or slowing down our perception of time.

Via Laughing Squid, artist and photographer Páraic McGloughlin has released Chase, an animated short film compiled from his personal photographs while offering a hypnotic look at everyday life. There is no plot or narrative to speak of, it just focuses on the way that everything blends together. Strangers literally walk in each others footsteps, and the city seems to live and breath as if it had a life of its own.

McGloughlin shot Chase in Ireland and Poland, and he described it as “a journey that explores ideas of decision, choice, consequence, circumstance and time among other things, a personal perception on how we try to find whatever it is we are searching for. The film looks at objects,people,and places which share common properties,our connection with one another and our environments in the very similar yet very different paths we share.”

You can follow McGloughlin’s work by checking out his Vimeo channel or visiting his personal portfolio at his official site.
