Paper Cutouts: The Fast Growth of Charlotte, NC

I wanted to share this stop motion animation below created by the artist, Rob Carter. He made it entirely from images printed on paper, and charts the growth of one of the fast growing cities in the United States – Charlotte, North Carolina. The video also touches on an extreme issue of water shortages that many expanding U.S. cities face today.
