This is a bit of an old topic but something I’ve just stumbled over a few days ago during a presentation. About 10 years back in 2001 Rosemarie Fiore took long exposure photographs of entire game sessions of old arcade games.
These do a great job at capturing the game space described by the movement of the player avatar. You can see a photograph of Tempest to the right but you can see the entirety of the set on her website gallery.
This is not time laps. This is long exposure. Totally different. Time lapse would be of no use on something moving in real time, and is played back as a movie, not still frames.
Having said that, these are some GREAT long exposure photographs! Very interesting, thanks for posting!!!
You are of course totally right. My bad. Will fix this.
Also feel free to share any and all photographs you can find 🙂
