Do you remember visualizers? A few years ago they were a must-have feature of every top-tier music playing application. Bustling and teeming with colour, visualizers could turn any listening experience into a trippy journey through self-repeating swirls, flames, and puddles.
Hypnotizing GIFs created by Erik Söderberg, a motion graphic designer from Sweden, can be described in a very similar manner. Through a series of animated illustration, the artist explores patterns, geometry, and organic flow. His images feature twirls, waves, and other shapes that bubble and twitch to an almost nauseating extent. Söderberg uses geometric shapes as well, but in his works geometry is twisted and unstable.
