Casper Rolsted is a visual artist specialized in timelapse and aerial photography. Some films are amazing because they show us the world in a way we all recognize. Others are amazing because they capture the world like we’ve never seen it. Casper’s work focuses on the second category. To bring things we normally see as static into life and to show our world from new perspectives. He uses timelapse to lift the constraints of time and space and thereby create a profoundly transformative experience for the viewer. The goal of his work is to inspire people to live in the moment and to expand their consciousness to the beauty around them.
