Geister in historischen Fotos, gif’d

Künstler und Desinger Kevin Weir nimmt sich alte Fotos aus dem Library of Congress Online Archiv und animiert Geister in diese.

Weir makes use of photographs he finds in the Library of Congress online archive, and is deeply drawn to what he calls “unknowable places and persons,” images with little connection to present day that he can use as blank canvas for his weird ideas. Perhaps it’s the nature of his imagination, or maybe a result of the medium’s limited frames of animation to communicate anything too serious, but despite the creepiness factor, it’s hard to not to smile at the absurdity of his ideas.
