This is a terrific performance by Laserman.
He seems to break all the laws of physics and manipulates laser light beams as if it is both a vapor and a solid.
He stops and redirects it, yet at the same time he pushes and twirls it–huh?
While I am not a fan of the movie Tron–I think I actually fell asleep in the theater (and more than once), this performance more than makes up for it.
My favorite piece is at 1:39 when Laserman picks the laser light up out of the stage–people start yelling as no one can believe it!–and he starts twirling it around like a baton now.
Then at 1:48, he breaks the light beam in two and starts twirling both and sticking them back in the stage only to start bending the light again.
To me, this performance is really cool and inspiring–it makes me think of a bright future for all of us–one that is agile, high-tech, heart-pounding, and where natural laws are almost made to be broken.
Someone please tell me how he does this…I promise, I won’t tell 😉
