Watch this disorientating but rather wonderful video of Oslo 'miniaturized' by Norwegian video photographer Eirik Evjen.
Evjen made the video, called 'Tiny Capital, while studying at the Nordic School of Photography, stitching together 76,940 single images, each of which was shot using a special tilt-shift lens. 
 
The technique makes the real-life Oslo resemble a model city brought to life through stop-motion animation. 
 
"The idea when I started working on the video was to convey the flow and population growth of the capital," he told Aftenposten newspaper. "This is a video about small but growing Oslo." 
 
The video has been a hit in social media well beyond Norway, and was picked up last week by CBS News in the US.
