The strings of a violin deform wildly when you play it

I've seen guitar strings filmed with a regular camera showing the sound waves they produce. It's a trippy effect. This, however, is different: A violin string filmed in slow motion. To be honest, I never expected for the strings to deform so much on this instrument.

Daaaamn. I play the violin, and have watched the strings while playing open notes (no fingers on the fingerboard), and it blows my mind that, despite what little movement I can actually see, they are in fact moving this rapidly.
