Timelapse drone footage of our new home in downtown Oklahoma City
The world is moving pretty fast lately. With news surrounding the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak changing by the minute, we thought you could use a breather. That's why we're bringing you the ultimate in "Slow TV" — an hourlong timelapse video of our new home at NW 11th and Broadway in downtown Oklahoma City.
Popularized by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation in the early 2000s, Slow TV (Norwegian: Sakte-TV) describes meditative, long-form visual programming prizing patience over payoff. The form has a longer history in the art world, including Andy Warhol's avant-garde art film Sleep (1963), as well as Jørgen Leth’s 1981 film of the artist eating a hamburger.
In this tradition, Oklahoma Contemporary is bringing you timelapse drone footage of our new home, depicting a day in the life of our new state-of-the-art building designed by Rand Elliot Architects and built by Smith and Pickel Construction. Tune in, zone out or just let it play in the background while you get some work done.
Remember: It's OK to slow down.
