Naked Human Bodies Jumping Up And Down In 2000FPS Is Not Flattering (NSFW)

Jiggle. Blubber. Bounce. Gravity's a bitch. It's especially unforgiving if you jump up and down naked while getting filmed at 2000FPS. That sort of slow motion camera work exposes all the extra meat we carry on our bodies. LA video artist Michael Haussman captured naked people in slow motion to show you what you're missing. Please note the video is NSFW.

Haussman's Gravity series will be showing at MOH in California. The exhibit explains:

This slow motion study reveals the shocking effects of gravity upon our body. What is normally missed in the blink of an eye, is poetically recorded in extreme slow motion, as gravity takes hold and pulls the body down to earth, causing the skin, cellulite, muscles and facial expression to sag down, with a weariness, as if the subject has suddenly aged 30 years. It appears like a special effect, the force ripples from the legs up, turning the body wrinkled and saggy, with a worn, older face that is defeated and depressed. Then the exact opposite effect and emotion overcomes the subject as they are made weightless and set free. We observe the body becoming youthful, rejoicing in it's expression and flawless skin texture, as it sores away from the earth. All physical and emotional expressions seem to float effortlessly upward in a positive, beautiful direction.

It's jarringly creepy seeing human bodies like this, I gotta say. I definitely enjoy watching the world and all of its people at normal speed. [Michael Haussman via BoingBoing]

    Interesting, and a little creepy. What goes up I guess.

    This is possibly one of the creepiest and most disturbing things i have ever seen.

    I agree with everyone else; that was creepy.

    Also, was it just me, or did the second guy have a gun? :\

      Yeah, what was with that? As if the video wasn't creepy enough they had to give the guy a gun?

      "You know what this 2000FPS video is missing? Weapons. Not actually doing anything, just being there. You know; for contrast or something."

        Now I'm wondering if the guy with the gun didn't have something to do with the kid in the other man's arms. :\ If this were just random naked people jumping in slow motion there'd be no questions (because random naked people jumping in slow motion is self explanatory), but the fact they had a guy with a gun and a guy holding a seemingly dead child... >_> I can't help but wonder if the artist was also trying to include some weird arse story in his weird arse slo-mo naked jumps. :\ Or was this just weird for the sake of being weird?

    Never seen a naked fat guy jumping with a gun. Oh well, I guess there's a first time for everything, no matter how disturbing it is.

    Bit different to the usual videos I watch of naked people bouncing up and down

    I love how the original source is... BoingBoing

    Sores (sic) away from the earth? Eww!!

    ... im'a save this article for tomorrow :O

    It started well, then the fat bird showed up and I felt like throwing up. YUCK, JUST YUCK
