That's neat, but the thing in the post is just a MIG welder

It's actually a mig welder, with the recessed tip back quite a bit, they did that so they can have better range

I know what it is.
But technically its not welding its 3d printing using a welder as a tool.
Welding is joining of materials by causing coalescence.
This isn't joining anything, its melting and then layering materials.
Yes, welder is a tool, but no, its not welding.

That's just a tack welder... I used to do this in shop class all the time.

There's a break in the vid where they stop and then the bottom half of the "art" becomes brighter. Guess they had to change the rod then?
