360° Video of a Photo Eidetic Autistic Man Recreating the Entire NYC Skyline After a Short Helicopter Flight

Stephen Wiltshire is an internationally acclaimed architectural artist that draws large-scale, photo-accurate skylines and cityscapes. Born on the autistic spectrum, the artist has a photo eidetic memory, allowing him to recall millions of details that help him recreate his mental image with incredible accuracy. In this immersive 360° video from the New York Times, watch as Wiltshire takes a short helicopter flight, then creates a massive mural of the New York City skyline.

Join the artist Stephen Wiltshire at the Empire State Building as he draws the New York skyline after spending less than an hour observing it by helicopter.
