Scientists at MIT have developed a camera system so fast that it lets us watch light move.
The system gathers image data at about a trillion frames per second — a normal camera shoots about 30, or 60.
Think of it this way: When you turn on a light in a dark room, the light starts in the bulb then moves outward until it reflects off of something. This looks like it happens instantly, but it doesn’t. It just happens at about 670 million miles per hour.
Identical twins endure a particular struggle with identity. Their search for self is dominated by their twin status - an intense bond defined by conflict, companionship, love, competition, sharing, separation and, of course, a shared physical appearence. It means each twin has two identities - as an individual, and as a twin.
My series aims to avoid direct physical comparisons between twins while allowing the viewer to acknowledge and accept the twins’ similarities and differences. For the twin, it gives them a different perspective on their double identities and poses questions about their relationship and their desire - or lack of desire - to live completely separate lives.

When I saw that sign out of all of those signs, I was like, I’ve got to have a picture of it. I thought if my 87-year-old mother sees this, I’m going to get hell this weekend, but it was too late.
This is Protéigon, an AWESOME stop motion short film by Steven Briand. Stop whatever you’re doing and watch this 1:30 of pure wonder.
