Ever wondered what it would look like if the laser inside your CD player went nuts?

This intriguing clip for Rob Clouth’s ‘Islands of Glass’ demonstrates what might happen. In the futuristic visual, a series of blood red lasers beam erratically across a lab desk, imitating the laser in a CD player going haywire.

“While plowing through some 7,800 frames of animation with only a predefined table of mirrors and lasers, the characteristics of the final video developed throughout the process of creating it,” said director Jan Blitzer.  “Nothing was pre-planned, designed or thought-through in advance.”

The footage itself was captured in a single, continuous shot. You can watch the video below.
