One year in Two minutes, a wonderful creation of Norwegian Erik Solheim from Oslo. Images from the same spot through one year. Audio recorded from the same location. Eirik Solheim is working as a senior strategic advisor in the development department of the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation. His experience includes years of work as a consultant within the media and entertainment industry for Accenture and experience within digital production as a sound designer, editor, steadicam operator and photographer. Back in 2005 he started an experiment shooting images out of his window for one year. As it turned out pretty cool, in the end of 2007 he decided to do the same but in much better quality and from the same spot each time, but not through the window. He found a spot outside on the balcony and shot images at pretty irregular intervals all through 2008.

The Charme of the four seasons with the eternal beauty of Antonio Vivaldi's music...
Venetian-born Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741) was an Italian Baroque composer, virtuoso violinist, teacher and cleric. He was recognized as one of the greatest Baroque composers, and his influence during his lifetime was widespread across Europe. Vivaldi is known mainly for composing many instrumental concertos, for the violin and a variety of other instruments, as well as sacred choral works and over forty operas.
Le quattro stagioni ("The Four Seasons") of 1723, a set of four violin concertos each being named after a season, is Vivaldi’s most famous work. It depicts moods and scenes from each of the four seasons. This work has been described as an outstanding instance of pre-19th century program music. The texture of each concerto is varied, each resembling its respective season depicting moods and scenes from each of the four seasons. Each one is in three movements, with a slow movement between two faster ones (and these movements likewise vary in tempo amid the seasons as a whole). The concertos were first published in 1725 as part of a set of twelve concerti, Vivaldi's Op. 8, entitled Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione (The Contest Between Harmony and Invention).
