A Firework’s Point of View

The Texas-based artist and video­g­ra­ph­er Jere­mi­ah War­ren mount­ed a wide angle lens cam­era on some fire­works to give us the fire­works’ angle on their own brief, bright tra­jec­to­ry. Not sur­pris­ing­ly, the very cool two-minute video — equal parts Strangelove, Pyn­chon, and ver­ti­go — went viral over the week­end.

For more infor­ma­tion about War­ren’s cam­era set-up, check out his Flickr page.
