Timelapse transforms stained-glass light into a stunning kaleidoscopic display

Shot inside the Washington National Cathedral in Washington, DC as it was undergoing repairs for earthquake damage, this mesmerising video captures the movement of light through the stained-glass windows of this neo-Gothic structure. By using timelapse photography, the director Colin Winterbottom transforms the cathedral into a canvas for the brilliant colours of its many large and elaborate stained-glass displays. The video was displayed at Winterbottom’s exhibition Scaling Washington, which debuted at Washington, DC’s National Building Museum in 2015.
