Imagining how New York City would look if its urban infrastructure suddenly came alive, German student Lena Steinkühler created this stunning animated short film that will have you seeing one of the world’s most famous cities in a different light.

Entitled ‘Biotopes’, the video is a surreal experience of The Big Apple—lamp posts, traffic lights and subway seats take on a life of their own and became morphing, moving and “blossoming” plant-like creatures.

Part of Steinkühler’s bachelor graduation project, the film deals with “abstract plants and creatures, which change their forms because of insufficient living space and adapt themselves to the surroundings of the metropolis New York City”.
