Artist Fabian Oefner has a strange way of painting.  For this series a rod is covered in various colors of acrylic paint.  The rods is connected to an electric drill which in turn is connected to a sensor that activates a camera flash lasting only 1/40,000 of a second.  The moment the paint begins to be flung in all directions off the rod (according to Oefner, one millisecond, to be exact, after the rod begins spinning) is caught by the carefully timed flash.  An instantaneous hurricane of color is frozen in midair capturing a structure that only exists for a fraction of a second.  [via]
