This week, the world’s great and good assemble in Paris to discuss the future of our planet. But, on a slightly less serious note, what if things on Earth got so hot that entire cities melted?

Directed by Florian Rouzaud Cornabas, this video is an experimental time-lapse, with the forms taken from the urban realm and spliced together in such a way that they appear to melt and fold in on each other. It’s only short, but it’s hypnotic, dream-like and soothing to watch.
