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! [...]
