An unusual New Year’s greeting from the Hall of Science

It’s no secret that Michael Layefsky takes terrific aerial photos of the Berkeley landscape. In 2012, he had two shows in Berkeley – one at the Main Library and one at the Picturish Gallery. Berkeleyside also published a large portfolio of his work shot with a camera flying 150 feet in the air.

Layefsky and the staff at the Lawrence Hall of Science teamed up to make this valentine of a video to usher in the new year. Check it out.

Here’s an interview with Layefsky about the making of the video.
