As I was doing a load of laundry in the washing machine I happened to stare at the tub as it was in it's spin cycle. I thought it would look interesting if illuminated with an LED flashlight. The tub is stainless with many facets and angles which reflected the light beautifully. It was quite mesmerizing. Grabbed my iPhone and took a couple minutes of footage of this simple yet interesting experiment.

I couldn't help but think of how much work it would have required to get this same effect by animating it in 3D and compositing lighting and other effects in after effects. Sometimes the real world offers up the best subjects in the least amount of time.

BTW, my clothes came out very clean.
