Shape-Shifting GIFs of Fine Art Sculptures

Tumblr user hateplow has created a series of GIFs that shift back and forth between figurative sculptures and pixelated abstractions. The glitchy animated images present an intriguing perspective of art. They're hypnotizing in their constant shape-shifting motion, but they also showcase the different forms one work of art can take. Any given piece is a chosen form of interpretation out of a wide spectrum of possible renditions, revealing the artist's option to either replicate a figure exactly, add geometric ridges, or blur the creation entirely.
