London-based designer and artist Yoni Alter has a new series of animal GIFs using only colored dots. Alter carefully studied the way the animals walk and focused on their movement while reducing the amount of information to a minimum. Similar to how Eadweard Muybridge studied the movement of a galloping horse, the animals are still recognizable as our minds complete the missing information. But Alter has taken his animated GIFs one step further by pausing their movement so they merge into the dotted background, turning the animations into some sort of abstract art.
