The powerful effects of gravity on the human body are shown in their full glory in this artistic video (NSFW)

For Michael Haussman’s Gravity installation at the Young Projects Gallery in Los Angeles last year, he revealed a beautiful video shot at 2,000 frames per second to show the powerful effects of gravity on the human body. The video was made by synching the camera to the movement, so it actually seems like the subjects are standing still as their body wobbles, and jiggles and does just what it’s meant to under the intense pressure of gravity.

As Haussman says: ‘Each of the five subjects is filmed in slow motion, defying gravity, floating upward, then descending downward, bottoming out in gravity’s clutch; yet each person is magically stationary’.

Fascinating, really.
