Adrenalin magazine, May 2003, synchroballistic skateboard images taken in Barcelona by Angus Leadley Brown, written by Tuomo Jakonen
Whereas a normal camera records a point in time in two dimensions, this
thing records a point in space and time as two dimensional (i.e. it becomes a sequence). Because it is filming the sequence of events at a point, the picture becomes a record of events at that point.
If the background doesn't change then it is just stretched along the film and only the foreground movement
disturbs the serenity.
When an object passes the camera -
unless it travels perfectly parallel to the film plane - any movement is represented as progression. For example, if an object like a board passes and turns along its axis, it will show both sides to the camera, and the resulting image will show the object twisted.
