Golf Ball Collision
I saw this video over the summer, is a slow motion shot of a golf ball travelling at 150mph and bouncing off a steel plate. I love the way the ball moves when it is soaking up the energy of the impact. It seems like such a fluid motion for the violent action. It's weird how something hard to the touch can move like this. The idea of the shot is to show the beauty of something you would not expect and that you would usually miss. The shapes formed after the ball has collided with the steel plate reminds me of some contemporary sculptures and some pieces produced by Henry Moore.
