Trippy Video: A Train Ride Recorded With A Handheld 3-D Scanner

Probably one of the top five weirdest things you will associate with public transportation.

Artist Chris Coleman rides the Denver Light Rail, and one day, started to record the train and its stations with a handheld 3-D scanner and laptop. (Sure. Why not. Probably a long ride.) He then digitally manipulated the scans to make METRO Re/De-construction, a video art project. The bumps and speed of the train affected Coleman’s hand while he was taking the scans; they show up in the video in forms of fragments and missing pieces. From Coleman’s page:

The results are kaleidoscopic, mind-warping, and seriously fun to watch.
