Toronto filmmaker turns the ice storm into art

As destructive as the Toronto Ice Storm has been (thousands still lack power), most will agree that the scene it left in its wake has been nothing short of beautiful. This was particularly the case this afternoon, when the clouds lifted and the new-seeming sun rendered our ice-encased tree limbs as cold bundles of glitter. But what does all this ice look like when it melts? Toronto filmmaker Tony Round combines the power of time lapse photography with still life compositions to reveal just how much an inch-thick layer of ice changes the nature of, well, ordinary things. Watch as things like bark, berries and tree branches come to life in reverse melt.
