Chronotopic Anamorphosis

André Mintz of the Marginalia Project explains what "Chronotopic Anamorphosis" is all about:

The image is digitally manipulated by fragmenting it into horizontal lines and then combining lines from different frames in the display. The result is a distorsion of the figures caused by their motion in time, or, as Brazilian researcher Arlindo Machado calls it: chronotopic anamorphosis.

The last segment of the video is the coolest one, hit play or follow the link to the Vimeo video.

This technique is also know as Slit Scan photography. Makes for some pretty trippy images/video.

It is a good effect. I think ultra subtle use could give an almost subconscious trip effect. The lines are distracting. It would be nice to see with a rendering that gave half values and smoothing to the break points so they were not obvious.
Overall very cool. :)

yes... it's homemade, a bit more of postproduction could make it better...

Anyway, the goin'through the door effect is really cool ^^

While it's true that Slit Scan photography was invented by Douglas Trumbull, this technique of Slit Scan time displacement on 3d objects was first done by Zbigniew Rybczynski.

This video did a darn good job of showing what vertigo feels/looks like to e when i've had it. You know things aren't moving like they look like they are...but you see it anyway. though this has more the trippy effect than the nausea of vertigo.
