With each snap of the shutter, our world is increasingly being catalogued by the hordes of photographers roaming the globe; and as projects like Microsoft’s Photosynth have shown, that information is useful for reproducing a surprisingly convincing reality. Now, French art director Thomas Jullien has been crowdsourcing from a relatively new spring of imagery – Instagram. He’s created a surprisingly beautiful film.

Jullien’s work weaves together the chaos of the Instagram world, creating a nostalgic, travel inspired film that flickers before our eyes like life in fast-forward motion. The video consists of 852 different pictures, from 852 different Instagram users around the world – a quick pause of the film reveals the individuality of each image. From family vacations to the Brandenburg Gate, to the Sydney Opera House and the Statue of Liberty, this film will make you want to get up and go.
