    Nicolas Sassoon: Waves

Art: Roll up to see Nicolas Sassoon's incredible new GIFs

Posted by Maisie Skidmore,

Oh, the hours of my childhood spent with my nose pressed up against the TV screen watching every tiny pixel change colour, my mum barking in the background to “get back or you’ll ruin your eyes!” (Insert the voice of Brian’s mum from Life of Brian here). Nicolas Sassoon makes computer art that induces my tender memories of that experience, and to very cool effect. Alas, screenshots just do not do it justice; to understand the full impact of Nicolas’ mind-bending, headache-inducing creations you need to spend a good couple of hours on his website, gaping open-mouthed like you couldn’t care less what either a caring parent or your ophthalmologist might think. And frankly, we don’t. Sorry mum.
