[T]he digital world is often held responsible for the stresses of modern life. But these GIFs by Carl Burton prove that it can also be a place to relax and disconnect. Immersive, hypnotic and at times dystopian, the digital artist creates singular monochromatic scenes that draw the eye into a meditative state.
These moving images are all about the little details – from tiny rain drops on a verdant landscape and the sun gently rising on the horizon, to meticulously crafted textures. Each is an intriguing exploration of our relationship with the natural, industrial and digital worlds.
