Watch a sobering time lapse documenting the effect of lockout laws on Sydney

Closed Sydney will bring a tear to your eye.

If you aren't up to date with just how damaging Sydney's lockout laws have been to the city, this video from Shifted Pictures will definitely be an eye-opener for you. With music from Art vs. Science's Jim Finn setting a deservedly sombre mood, Closed Sydney uses time-lapse techniques to walk you through many of the venues that have been forced into closure since the introduction of the outrageously harsh laws in 2014. Art vs. Science have been one of the loudest voices protesting the lockout laws over the past two years, and Finn added his thoughts along with the fitting music for Closed Sydney: "A city's nightlife is the heart of its creative culture. Grand plans and grander ideas are born from bars, clubs and dance floors. Where friends and lovers are forged in the later hours. To kill this is to stop the beating heart of a city's creative soul, to snuff out relationships before they can take a breath. Goodbye art. Goodbye love."
