Here are some mind-boggling GIFs from Erik Söderberg to transfix you

There’s something delightfully scientific about Erik Söderberg’s GIFs, however firmly I remind yourself that they’re composed of thousands of pixels. The repetitive way they pulsate and fizz quietly on the screen takes me right back to double Biology on a Thursday morning, watching in shellshocked fascination as tiny living cells mutate on a tiny strip of glass under a microscope, and grandly imagining myself to be the second coming of Louis Pasteur.

They’re nothing of the sort, of course, but there’s a certain draw to the notion of an image created solely for the purpose of aesthetic pleasure, too. In fact, Erik is a multi-disciplinary artist working across graphics and 3D design. “In early 2011 I was exploring the relations of geometry, nature and the human being in a series of 25 pictures that I called Fractal Experience,” he explains. “This is part two – continuing the exploration of geometric shapes, patterns, and fractals with an added element – space-time.” The technical know how required to created moving digital imagery to this advanced level deserves recognition, and we’re more than happy to give it to him.
