If you've ever wondered what it would be like if all parts of your body had eyes, filmmaker Eli Stonberg has your answer. Stonberg strapped a bunch of cameras to the limbs of skater Aryeh Kraus (plus one under his board) and captured multiple views of a rainy day skate session.

"I wanted to create an anatomical study of a skateboarder’s motions," said Stonberg. "When a skater attempts a trick, we usually think of their front foot doing most of the work. It slides and kicks violently to make the board spin or ollie. I was interested in what the other body parts were doing at that same moment."

For best results, watch a few times.

The music is "Pure" by Blackbird Blackbird. For more from them, check out the video for "Blind."
