Michał Mikołaj Wojtunik spent 10 months documenting his travels—from London and Kraków to Chanthaburi and Gauhati—in one-second shots. The resulting montage, set to Drake’s remix of Lykke Li’s “Little Bit,” captures the random beauty of life: the insects and interactions, the architecture and antiquities.    

It’s enough to stop you in your tracks.
