‘beach earth’ by david copithorne itacare, brazil

as part of ‘moving the still: a GIF festival‘, canadian artist david copithorne presents some of his abstract geometric artwork – in motion. the work, in celebration of the graphics interchange format (GIF)’s 25th anniversary, copithorne combines the disciplines of photography, art and film-making to create conceptual compositions depicting landscapes from around the globe, skillfully infusing natural scenery with geometric elements. to create the pieces he fuses digital photography methods with a traditional 35mm, assembling a a dynamic selection of visual ingredients.

copithorne describes his work ethos:

‘my motivation and dedication is to capturing the amazing scenarios that are missed by the average eye. I seek natural scenarios that you can’t find in a studio and attempt to visually adapt the vast crooks and corners of the world into my own creative output. to me, that’s where amazing photographs are born – that split second can change your life and ready or not you can change the world with a single digital image.’

‘moving the still: a GIF festival‘ is the first ever large-scale, open call for original animated GIFs presented by tumblr and online art market paddle 8. you can send in submissions until november 7th, 2012 here.
