Wow, that was extremely compelling/satisfying to watch. Thanks!

Now that I've watched that, the rest of my day is inevitably going to be boring and unmagical in comparison.

That just kept going! It was like entering a dream state. When he pulled the match from his palm I thought it was going to take a turn for the nightmarish.

WHAT?! That was astounding. It felt like the animator was playing with another couple dimensions.

This is what it would be like if we ever encountered inter dimensional objects a la Roadside Picnic. Don’t touch the matches!

This is better (for me) with some music to go along with it

I watch roughly 95% of youtube videos at 2x speed. I slowed this down to .25 and it was *still* (maybe more!) amazing to watch.

Also this is youtube video that doesn't have sound. Wha? Is that allowed :) ?

It's like a masterclass in visual imagination—and I agree that it does fascinating things with dimensions. Wow.

Reminds me of PES! Western Spaghetti and Fireworks were favorites.

So delightful.

Some of these would be so gratifying to do in real life. They remind me of those videos of "oddly satisfying manufacturing processes" that pop up every so often.

Like, if you gave me a table-top full of matches that would automatically point to where my finger touched, I'd lose an hour to it easily.

A lot of them are playing with correlations. A lot of human visual perception is bound up in correlations, like parallax is a correlation of foreground movement with background movement, old wireframe computer rendering is lines on the screen but we accept them as representing a 3D object because they move in ways a 3D object is supposed to move.

I feel like that's behind the feeling bonobothegreat describes as playing with extra dimensions. Like these things will move in ways similar to being connect when they are not, or transform in ways that would not literally happen in real life, but which correlate with other movement.
