From my mindless and tedious opArt Loops Collection (little experiments).
Category Archives: work in progress
Standard time lapse clouds with a simple displacement map effect applied. The displacement map is a blurred version of the same clouds with a horizontal and/or vertical shift. More of these experiments can be found in my opArt loop collection on Vimeo.

Swirly Abstract Cloud(s) Loop
Seriously, I just figured out that you can loop embeds on Vimeo! Optical illusion: if you stare at this long enough, and stop it manually, it will appear to reverse direction and keep moving, slowly.
opArt loops are like little experiments, that sometimes evolve into larger pieces, or sometimes not.
Amber World w.i.p.
Amber World or Tripped in Amber, something like that, exists as a set of abstracted loops constructed from single frame images (from the American Museum of Natural History), mainly dinosaurs, layered, animated and creatively degraded (as to render the original images incoherent, and yet, still organized).
Cloud Mirror (a work in progress)
I’ve been collecting time-lapse clouds for a number of years and thought it was time for an assemblage of some of the nicest ones, but with an abstract twist (the mirror effect). Kind of makes you look at it differently.
“Night Trips”: nocturnal experiments
A collection of photographic abstractions stemming from a disparate collection of nocturnal time-lapse shots collected over the last few years. Improvisations, if you will.
“Molten Cubes” trippy abstract loop
Swirly abstract water loop
High speed water shot with a Sony RX100 IV, enhanced via After Effects. Here’s a common weird effect: if you stare at this loop until the end, when it stops, it will seem to rotate or twist in the opposite direction (even though the image is frozen). Weird, huh?
Psychedelic “Pseudo-Slit-Scan Eye Effect”
No, this isn’t exactly like the famous “Stargate” sequence in 2001: A Space Odyssey, nor was it done the same way, it’s just that it’s hard to come up with descriptive titles for stuff like this. Best I could do. Random single frames of colorful texture with a “mirror-image” effect applied, then processed through static “slit-mattes”, progressively thrown out of sync.
