And for the video, Barcelona-based experimental filmmakers Pablo Barquín, Junior Martínez, Nathan Grimes, and Anna Diaz Ortuño make some optical fireworks in the form of some seriously sophisticated light painting.

What they’ve done is transport nature to the photo rig rather than the other way around, apparently lending a higher degree of control.
