Street Art Comes Alive in Animated GIFs

Spanish photographer and motion designer A.L. Crego puts a fun twist on animated GIFs by taking existing street art and making it come alive. Crego has always enjoyed the work of local street artists in Spain but thought that making the pieces move would give that much more meaning to them. Why not film the art? He believes it would not have the same effect, because there would be a beginning and an end. Instead, the GIFS allow the pieces to come alive in the environments in which they were meant to be seen.

In 1992, Wayne Adams and Catherine King began building a floating home about half an hour by boat off the coast of tiny Tofino, British Columbia. Today that home has expanded to encompass 12 large platforms covered by living spaces, green houses, lush gardens and plenty of docks to tie up a kayak. Painted in bright magenta and teal hues, they call their self-built island Freedom Cove.

A Kinetic Light Installation Dances on the Ceiling of St. Petersburg’s Leningrad Center

St. Petersburg’s historic Leningrad Center has a new and luminous ceiling for its main theater. Above the audience is a matrix of dancing multi-color LED lightbulbs hanging from nearly invisible cords that whisk them up and down in mesmerizing patterns. One moment the field of lights look like gently flowing waves and the next they form a geometric pyramid – each new form is made with smooth and precisely choreographed transitions.

The only problem here? People might be so captivated by the lights that they miss the show itself.

Art Created with Beach Trash Washed Up at Mexico’s Sian Ka’an Reserve

Artist Alejandro Duran makes that point clear through his color sorted collections of beach trash that washes up along the coastline of Mexico’s largest federally-protected reserve, Sian Ka’an.
