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. A pixelated face here and a geometric tweak there, et voila! A captivating ode to art history.
