Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

I'm not going to lie to you guys, I've no idea how the shot came to be!

I was out for the culture night festival in Belfast and I was watching this great live band, the atmosphere was brilliant and there were lovely lights hanging down. So i though i would get a few nice long exposures to put up for a magazine i was working for. My camera somehow froze up and i was moving it up and down, trying to see what had gone wrong in the dark. Then maybe a minute later this photo popped up on the screen and I fell in love with it. I love how, what i assume the yellow light in was initially trying to capture transform into this swirling ribbon!

A happy happy accident and a piece of art that I cant recreate, it was totally spontaneous and random and i think that reflects the best things in life sometimes. You didnt plan them, you didnt know what was happening at the time and they turn out to be the great!
