WHOA. These Paintings Change Shape
Artist Rafaël Rozendaal works with a vintage technology (lenticular animation) that you’ll probably recognize from your old sticker collection. You know those stickers where the butterfly would flap its wings when you moved it back and forth? That’s the stuff.
Wired reports that Rozendaal approaches this technology and all of his work in a modern way, mapping his work with algorithms and pixels. He is inspired by the fact that even people at the Louvre can be found messing around on their phones. He thought he should make art that lives in the cloud.
So aside from these tangible shapeshifting paintings, he works almost exclusively online, creating mini galleries in the form of websites — but we think these paintings will make you want to put down your phones for a sec.
