Michael Silber's hilariously awesome "Kaleidopope" is like a visit to the Vatican Museum on acid. Scroll over his interactive work on his website to see popes past whirl by in dazzling geometrical patterns.

"I cherish any opportunity to make a bad pun, especially if I can develop the idea visually," Silber wrote in an email to The Huffington Post about his work, which was inspired by the election of Pope Francis.

Silber is a design student at Pratt Institute, and "Kaleidopope" is part of his "Digital Humor Theory" thesis, which in his words, explores "how humor emerges and is experienced in digital media."
