Cinemagraphs: A Truly Digital Art Form
It’s official: pictures are old school. Who wants to look at a picture when you can look at one of these? These animated GIFs, or “cinemagraphs,” are the work of photographer Jamie Beck and graphic designer Kevin Burg. These seamless animations capture individual moments of beauty and everyday life and pause them indefinitely.
One website comments that just as jazz is the only truly American art form, the animated GIF is the first truly digital art form. They’ve always been around, but these cinemagraphs make the animated GIF feel like a truly viable art form. Check out more at the cinemagraph website for your viewing pleasure.
