I don’t know if they still do it, but those paint flinging contraptions were pretty popular at school carnivals when I was a teenager. For a quarter, you could take home your own original piece of psychedelic art. I suppose they aren’t as common as they once were, because Gav and Dan, the Slow Mo Guys, made their own. They also put the paper under the disc instead of on top, and added paint before the flinging begins. What’s the fun in that? The fun is in their slow-motion videography, as we can see how paint moves and creates gloriously colorful swirls, globs, and messes. They way they spun the background to stabilize the view of the disc makes it much easier to see what’s really happening with the paint. Cosmic.
