These incredible photographs by Fabian Oefner were made by paint, a metallic rod, a drill, and a high-speed camera. Using special sensors, the camera captures the image precisely as the drill begins to spin. The paint flies off of the drill 1/40000 of a second after the drill is turned on, and the beautiful design is created purely by centripetal force. The resulting photographs are absolutely stunning.
