Animating Old Photos - an Art Project

posted on May 11 2013

Here is amazing art project by Designer and artist Cari Vander Yacht. The mountain and the family portrait are my favourite, but this bike one is pretty cool too. 

She takes photos from the 50s and animates them into .gifs. The warping of reality, it's a kind of self deprecation of our sentimentality towards nostalgia while allowing you to appreciate the beauty in it. Geese, what I love about these is that you could interpret them in so many ways, while just appreciating them at face value for their mesmerising patterns.
I wonder what our photos of the future will look like?
