#ThrowbackThursday: Daly and Nicholas, Past & Present


I found today’s entry on the Facebook page for Lost Ottawa. The SAW Video Media Arts Centre is located the building now known as the Arts Court. Of course, that building wasn’t always used for that purpose – many still remember it as the old courthouse. For a new video from SAW, historical and modern photos of the site are merged together to compare the  building as it once was and as it is today.  Click here to watch the full video (it’s only 2:48 long, and totally worth it!).

From the creator:

My video for Issue 9 uses historical photographs of the Arts Courts site and video of the present day site. Using the same vantage point in both the video and the photographs, the images are morphed together, allowing a comparison of the past and the present day view of the site. They reveal architectural changes and the passage of time flowing over these buildings as the surrounding city rises up around them.
