"Slow Dancing" art installation utilizes slow-motion HD

Darren Murph

Here's an interesting one. In a wild art installation destined to debut at the Lincoln Center Festival, David Michalek will be utilizing high-definition video and slow-motion effects "to show 43 dancers moving at less than one one-hundredth of their original speed." The dancers were captured at 1,000 frames-per-second, and thanks to the additional slow down, an average five-second clip has been stretched into shorts that run between eight and twelve minutes. The project is slated to be projected on a trio of screens in uncompressed HD in the New York State Theater through July 29th, but if you're a good ways from the Big Apple, feel free to sneak a peek at the (less momentous) video in the read link.
