These Designers Make Boring Old Video Cameras Do Impossible Tricks

Video cameras have traditionally been used to document the world in a pretty straightforward manner. But they’ve become so small, and so versatile, that you can do some incredible things with them.

The production is a result of a workshop at ECAL, an art and design school in Switzerland. The students there were charged with the task creating videos that the world has never seen. A daunting task no doubt, but whether it was fulfilled or not, the short vignettes show how inventive one can be with technology and a bit of creative thinking.

It’s particularly refreshing to see the GoPro capturing interesting footage that is not of some extreme sport. And there’s nothing quite like odd experience of rolling down a street suspended in a translucent sphere filled with water. More of this, please, always. [Vimeo via Prosthetic Knowledge]
