Beautifully Endless Looping GIFs Created by a Legally Blind Artist

Native American artist George Redhawk creates eerily beautiful gifs even though he’s legally blind. With help from computer software, the designer utilizes the art of gif-making to show others how he sees the world as a man who suddenly lost his sight. "It's an artistic expression of the confusion I go through with my vision loss," Redhawk told The Creators Project. "Not enough data getting sent to the brain, and it tries to fill in the blanks with false information, so you can't trust what your eyes or brain are telling you." The result is an impressive collection of moving art, called The World Through My Eyes.

Even though Redhawk doesn’t refer to himself as an “artist,” that doesn’t stop him from creating pieces that look like they belong in a museum. While overcoming his own visual impairment, he offers the world an optically dynamic series. His works are both eye-catching and mesmerizing. You can find yourself getting lost in the undulating motions of color and looping patterns. At times, it even feels as though you’re meditating.

Artist Crystal Liu intimately ties her emotional states to beautiful abstract paintings. In large-scale works, she constructs landscapes that are metaphors for the intangible forces that drive us. Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
