cool, but @ 1:55 you can see the string
I was just thinking its a really fast strobe light.
Like a red strobe on a turntable, move the pitch and the dots on the platter change direction.
the scan lines makes me think this is a projection
so how does it work?!
i hate to be captain obvious here, but it's a strobe light effect. the oil is flowing normally, but the super fast strobe fools your eyes into seeing/interpreting it differently. I thought everyone knew these things, but after hearing and reading comments, i'm a bit surprised at the general populace.
it reminds me of those old mineral oil rain lamps. as a kid i would always feel the need to touch those. lol
These people never played with strobe lights. I'd actually imagine not everyone played with strobes enough to make that effect.
