Trippy, Breathing Shapes: GIFs From THE FUTURE

This is what the world will look like in 9999AD, I’m sure of it. Pretty soon we’re all going to evolve into sentient cubes made of metal colloids and crystals and feed on pure digital sustenance. Oh, how exciting is the future!

The Power And Poignancy Of Water: 6 Photorealistic Masterpieces

If you’re anything like me, you don’t know shit about painting. But, as far as my logical mind can conjecture: the more things that interfere with a clear picture of your subject (weird lighting, light refraction, drunkenness), the more difficult it is to capture the subject. That’s why these paintings are so absolutely remarkable: Alyssa Monks renders the effect of choppy watter and foggy windows as perfectly as a photograph. Technique aside, these paintings remind me of some intense emotions- feelings of isolation, the freedom and melancholy that comes with a silent summer rain on a nothing afternoon.

Check Out These Creeping, Weblike Designs (That Are Completely Digital)

Absolutely beautiful, reminiscent of topographical maps or the rings of a gnarly tree- the shading on these procedural designs is so well done that I’m still not entirely sure that these were created by a computer. Digital artist Christoph Bader did not draw these lines. What you’re observing is a result of pure math: customized formulas, not the action of the artist, created these images. The computer provides Bader’s petri dish, which he infects with digital bacteria that spread and divide on their own to create these intricate, delicate, incredibly real forms.
