DAiNGIFS smsingh asked: I love your artwork, I've been extremely fascinated by the wiggle-gram concept of 2d objects without having to take 2 images (it's always a hassle to do that). One artist to another, could you briefly explain how you worked out the displacement maps on Photoshop to get the 3d wiggle gram effects? Thanks! Hello! Keren Moscovitch's Photographs of Intimate Moments During Sex (NSFW) Through this process, I became very aware of society’s relationship to sexuality, and began to focus on those secret places many people typically consider too private to share. The camera became an integral part of my intimate life – as the boundaries dissolved in my relationships, so, too did the boundaries of what I was willing to share through the lens.—Keren Moscovitch Me Into You is New York-based photographer Keren Moscovitch‘s self-published monograph chronicling her experiences in an open relationship. The work explores the possibilities and limitations of intimacy, investigating the dissolving lines between individual, couple, and community. A fearless reveal of her experiences, Moscovitch hopes to expose her audience to a broader definition of intimacy, and to new ways in which individuals and communities connect and experience sexuality.

Animated gifs by Zack Dougherty Sometimes after a long staring contest with a great piece of art, you might feel a little exhausted, maybe even start seeing things. Zack Dougherty‘s latest project doubles down on this idea by featuring a clever collection of manipulated, hypnotizing GIFs. The Portland-based digital artist takes a simple sculpture and turns it into eternally repeating images, transforming pristine busts into psychedelic moving pictures. These switch so rapidly that eye and brain need some time to grasp the lightning evolution of the picture. But when one fathoms this sequences the deed is done: he is witness of a captivating ode to art history.

Only the Creepiest Photos Ever Taken Mourning is a strange thing, and different cultures deal with it in vastly different ways. But there are reasons people associate the Victorians with morbidity and death, and one of them is memento mori. The fact is, postmortem photographs like this were taken more than any other kind of photograph in the Victorian era -- especially in the U.S. -- and in many cases these carefully arranged, meticulously staged pictures were the only ones ever taken of their subjects. From Stanley Burns' book Sleeping Beauty: Memorial Photography in America: These photographs were a common aspect of American culture, a part of the mourning and memorialization process.
