Gliding Through the World

Graeme Taylor captures the world using a high-speed video camera on a fast-moving train.  It’s amazing to watch the world slow down to a  crawl.  He explains, “in all my slow-motion work so far, I’ve used a static camera to capture a high-speed event. But, I wondered, what would happen if the camera was the fast-moving object? For instance, if you use a 210fps camera at 35mph, on playback at 30fps it’ll seem to the observer that they’re moving at walking pace — but everything observed will be operating at 1/7th speed.”

Really, though, it would just be cool to glide through the world with everything moving at 1/17th speed.  [via Capndesign]
