I wrote about Santtu Mustonen about a year ago but I was reminded of his work after seeing that Grain Edit had written about him last week. Browsing through his work I came across these animated GIFs he had made and thought it was a great excuse to post them on the site. The one at top was created for Wired magazine, I’d guess it was about pirate radio, and the second was a piece for the 2011 Flow Festival.
Like the Pia Bramley GIF I posted earlier (which is why I wanted to post these as well) I could sit and watch these forever. I love the ship floating on the water like that, gently sailing along. The waves of the radio signal are extremely detailed and well done. Pay attention to the subtle color shifts, it’s kind of genius. I certainly hope he makes more of these.
