People use swarms of Roombas (robot vacuum cleaners) and attach LED lights to the top to make these pretty light pictures. Quite cool :)
Some really wonky acid I took once? Nah, Izzy's probably right.
It looks like a sort of simulated annealing.
Lite Brite? Don't know but I like it. Happy 4th!
this is the mind of someone with FAR too much time on their hands. Or avoiding "butt in chair" .. and writing. Or housework. just sayin'
It's what Jackson Pollock would be doing today if he were alive.
Roomba swarm! XDI wonder if it would be possible to record this as it's happening, and capture all the light trails? Can video cameras even do that?Because I'd love it see it . . .
Sarah W.It's not a video camera. This is a photo technique called light painting.I can think of a couple of ways to set up this shot, but suffice it to say the only light in the room is whatever LED is on the Roomba. Typically this is done with a (D)SLR with the shutter locked open. You want very low light conditions (as in the picture) or you will fry your camera. It basically works just like traditional film. It's a shot that takes a lot of time to accumulate photons on the sensor (film).It's a neat technique to play around with.
Whoops, sorry Sarah! I misread your comment. I probably sounded condescending in my previous comment... :(As for video, I've seen the technique done (we all have if we're in the US and watch TV commercials), but I don't think any consumer level video camera could do it (as in sub $2K), but I could be wrong. I really don't know what kind of video camera would be needed, since all my experience is with still shots.
That's some fantastic art installation in New York, yeah? Just a guess. : )
I'm pretty sure that those are motion detector lasers and there's a shark under the floor. If you cross the beam...GULP. Yep. That's it.
I think those are my shoelaces from seventh grade.
High Tech bumper cars... agression without consequence... no pain, no game
sorry... I meant aggression... lack of sleep makes me stupid... that's my story and my ex-wife's sticking to it.
It's the time-line for The Man in the Empty Suit.
and it's Sean Ferrell FTW!
my first thought . . .must be art.
The mating patterns of earlier ancestors of Spirograph?
I'm back in the 60s, man!
I don't know but it's pretty :D Happy 4th!
What MitMoi said.
That is the prettiest way to get clean carpets I've ever seen.
