A quick update on the acquisition of an Akaso EK5000 camera, fig 1.  I bought this on 15th July 2017 as an alternative, and possibly an addition, to the Raspberry Pi plan I am hatching (see previous post).  After some experimentation I set it up on a 60 second timelapse for 7 hour overnight using its 170 degree fisheye lens.  I have made a short movie (see fig 2,3) using iMovie of the gathered images to provide an experience of a space as the light of dawn begins in its blueness to pervade the sky, then the window frames and interior.  I will continue to sophisticate this process with the intent that it will be left over a 24 hour period in an abandoned building to allow me too record ‘a day in the life of’ the space for presenting in a multimedia way as part of my final project.
