Digital camera mounted to the business-end of a drill

Artist Oscar Lhermitte attached a digital camera to a spinning plate mounted on a hand-drill. The results are pretty fabulously trippy.

“Looking at the different ways to shoot videos. Part of a workshop at the RCA led by Rosario Hurtado and Quique Corrales. May 2010.

“Instead of making a normal movie, I am trying to get a colour gradient of what the camera is shooting. There is no postproduction involved, the effect is achieved by connecting the lens of the camera to a drilling machine. The video is taking 15 frames per second, whereas the drill is spinning at more than 20 turn per second.”
