Here’s something you don’t see every day: a skateboarding skeleton. The artist behind this is Darren Pearson, a master of light painting photography. The video, Light Goes On, is a stop-motion light painting animation that shows a skeleton living it up in the dark of the San Diego night. According to Pearson, it took him nearly a year of work to complete it. He used 700 individual photographs that were painted in camera via flashlight.
