dance of the fibersDANCE OF THE FIBERS

This mesmerizing display demonstrates, in slow motion, a process that normally cannot be seen in any other way: open air yarn spinning. Fibres are magically drawn up by the spinning impeller and assemble into a central structure resembling a loosely spun yarn only to be dispersed at the top, fall to the bottom and be drawn up once again in an endless dance of fibers.
