german photographer yannick wegner has created a video that captures the liège-guillemins train station designed by santiago calatrava. the site is the main transportation hub for the city of liège in belgium, and the film is evocative high-speed and fluidity. the images were developed to show the interaction between architecture and humans as well as time and light. every frame has been meticulously shot using a digital SLR camera and the post production process involved compiling thousands of images that were then stabilized, edited and tied together into a moving piece.
