Light Drive: “Light painting” animations on a turntable

Light painting animations using cold cathode case lights, EL wire, lasers and more… all mounted on a turntable! The piece was created by Kim Pimmel:

The video is stop motion, so every frame is an individually shot photograph. Each photograph is a long exposure photo, with exposures reaching up to 20 seconds in some cases.

There are also some long exposure images on flickr, like this one and this one.
