Ever wonder what it would be like to sit in one place in Manhattan for 10 hours and then get a full-color postcard that encapsulated the entire experience? Well, you can either consult your local purveyor of psychedelics, or check out the art of photographer Stephen Wilkes.

Wilkes sets up shop at one New York location (the Flatiron Building (above), Washington Square Park, Times Square, and more), and takes a series of shots over a 10-hour period. He then constructs a blended collage of the images to create one master image. It's a fascinating way to look at the city, and an example of photography getting cartoony (in a good way). Wilkes' work is on display at CLAMPART through September 8. [via Gawker]
