Is it color or black-and-white? Video artist shows that it’s all just shades of grey

Here's an oddly mesmerizing "black & white" video, which is not a black & white video at all. Video artist Eran Amir painted an entire room, including himself, in shades of grey and then shot video of the scene in color.

The real-life color of the scene is cleverly revealed over the length of the two-minute clip.

We're not exactly sure what the point of it is other than good artistic fun.

Below the video is a behind-the-scenes "making of" clip on how it was created.
