Watch this: Nosaj Thing's 'Eclipse/Blue' pairs choreographed dance with live motion-based animation

Nosaj Thing Eclipse blue

The official video for electronic musician Nosaj Thing's latest single "Eclipse/Blue" is a beautifully stylized dance performance inspired by a solar eclipse, but also a unique technological feat. The video was created by technology artist Daito Manabe, and stars two dancers, one in front of the screen and the other behind. The live performance was choreographed, designed, and performed using a Point Grey high-speed camera to track the dancers' movements and project the effects onto their bodies, with no effects added in post-production. Watch the mesmerizing video below, then head over to The Creator's Project for more information about the artists and their inspiration.
