As Nevada goes to the polls, Donald Trump is still the favorite to log a third consecutive win for his over-the-top campaign for President.

Ahead of Super Tuesday, TIME sent photographer Christopher Morris to capture the candidates’ rallies in slow motion. The surreal experience shows what the human eye can’t see and process in real time. Using the Phantom camera, Morris was able to record close to 1,000 frames per second, stretching seconds into minutes in experimental films that lie between still photography and video artistry.
