“Continuum Infinitum” is a Visual Loop that Sucks You In…Forever
Animations that appear to have a kind of “infinite zoom” aren’t the newest trend in graphic art, but the flair of the highly detailed, hypnotic art that characterizes Continuum Infinitum is more unique. Created by Ben Ridgway, the film (if that’s even the best category to throw it under) has won awards for experimental animation and been screened internationally. Designed to be played on an endless loop and helpfully equipped with a range of HD download options, Ridgway is practically begging you to watch this with the aid of psychedelic paraphernalia. (You’ll have to wait for a writeup on that version of the video.) Check out more of the artist’s visual oddities here.
