Time-lapse has the ability to turn something that you wouldn’t exactly call classically beautiful into stunning, moving works of art. Dubai is one of those somethings. This gorgeous-looking time-lapse video turns something that's just a patch of sprawling urban landscape crawling out of the sand into an electric beauty reminiscent of Tron.

I have never felt any desire to visit Dubai before, but this makes me look at it in a whole new light. Maybe it’d be worth dropping in on once. You can video more of Bentley's work over on his blog.
