You’ve probably seen the flurry of photos animated thanks to GIFs. It seems old school, but there’s a lot you can do with GIFs. Check out what Vancouver-based French artist Nicolas Sassoon does. Some of these are pretty cool.
His work uses computer-based aesthetics to generate strange and surreal visions of architecture, landscapes, and environments, that are quite hypnotic. His art is styled as pseudo-retro, which includes bright colors, moving patterns, and that bitmap-quality that is so cool. I’ve put up a couple of examples of Nicolas’ GIFs in the gallery below:
The undulating pixels might disorient you due to their movement, but it’s all in good fun. You can check out more of his art over at his blog You Make Me So Happy.
