Slowing Down

As part of his Stainless project, Adam Magyar has created these hypnotic slow-motion videos of people on subway platforms. 

As he says, the people become "living sculptures." I'm spellbound. Slowing everything down allows you to sort of spend more time in a specific moment (very quantum physics-y). 

If they had a channel that played nothing but slow-mo videos of people on subway platforms, I would watch all-day, in the background of whatever else I was doing. You can see full-length video and stills (where you can zoom in on the faces in the trains) on his website.
