I'm Puking: Video From Camera Attached To A Drill

March 2, 2012


This is 'Seeing in Circles', a video made by Oscar Lhermitte by attaching a digital camera to an electric drill /buffer and spinning the shit out of it. I'm not sure if this confirms that art is in fact dead, but it definitely made me feel pretty pukey. Also: the cereal I had for breakfast this morning. "That was cat food." I was wondering when Lucky Charms introduced fish shapes.

Hit the jump to get your spin on, bonus painting of a nude on a drill traveling at a similar speed at the very end.

Video from camera mounted on a power drill makes your head spin [dvice]

Thanks to Alex, who once set the middle-school record for most consecutive spins on the merry-go-round and then vomited for four days straight. Me? I crapped my pants a see-saw.

  • I thought it was going to seamlessly cut into the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey

  • This is awesome. Really like it when people not only think of cool ideas but bring you visuals that blow your mind. I was getting tired of the regular POV videos on the underside of skateboards. Love this!

    My head hurts.

    that last one was pretty cool

  • Flalaski

    isn't that a polisher? not a drill?

  • Torturing a camera (or loosing one as artilleryboy's class did) is unnecessary.

    Get a camera that can take long exposures (say 15, 30, or even 60 seconds or so) lower the iso, and turn the f/stop up. Then you can spin the camera far slower and get stills like the video has... without the risk of destroying your camera in the process.

  • For one thing stills are boring and that's been done before, and two that camera was probably really cheap anyways.

    Wait... you crapped a see-saw? GW has some dark secrets.

  • Thomas Ramsey

    too fast. just stupid.

  • artilleryboy

    Holy shit. I did this a couple of years ago with some kids from my art class and some from the wood tech class. The camera went flying off and we only ever found half of it and that was the bit without the sd card. Looks like something a person on drugs might describe.

    That's how the real world looks like for an atom.
