Self-Sustaining GIFs by Anna Taberko

Minnesota-based illustrator and animator Anna Taberko has been creating a beautiful series of kaleidoscopic animations where flowers, seed pods, and butterflies morph into each other to produce self-sustaining loops. The works are the artist’s first effort at making phenakistoscope inspired animations, an old technique that placed drawings onto a spinning disc to trick the eye into perceiving movement. Taberko is a recent graduate from MCAD and shares many of her animation experiments on Tumblr.
