Skill, dedication, vision: a good timelapse requires all of these things. A really cool subject helps too. 'The Allegory of the Cave,' a new timelapse from Visual Suspect, checks all of those boxes. By mirroring Hong Kong's vibrant cityscapes, its creators aim to play with themes of 'perception and knowledge as reflection of our reality.' 

Familiar images of skyscrapers in clouds or boats in a harbor become abstract shapes – where does one image stop and its reflection begin? Is anything real?

See? We told you it was trippy.
