i’m jealous of rrrrrrrroll

I get motion sick reallllllly easily, but these beautiful & mesmerizing animated gifs are totallllllly worth it. This is the work of RRRRRRRROLL, a collective from Japan. There are five artists involved in art directing, shooting, and then animating these gorgeous, simple, muted, dizzying gifs. Lovely. Ok, I have to lie down now.

    Oh I love these, there is such a quiet stillness too them, which seems like a crazy thing to say because of all the twirly twirly. But it’s like the rest of the world is frozen or gone to sleep.

    [...] Art that requires dramamine.   Can’t stop/won’t. This art impresses too! [...]

    While the report should be read with some skepticism, it raises excellent questions. As our data increasingly moves to the cloud, how can we measure the environmental impact of the data centers that are essential to future of technology?
