Perpetual Motion

Intricate shapes loop endlessly in these elegant animated gifs by animator Anna Taberko. Totally mesmerizing, I love how you can recognize all sorts of organic elements as they turn and return. She is inspired by the Phenakistiscope, a 19th century device that gives the illusion of motion. You can see more of her work on instagram.
