The Unsettling GIFs of a ‘Cloned’ Erdal Inci

by Danny OldaPosted on

Turkish artist Erdal Inci has a peculiarly unnerving style.  He mixes videos and special effects to create trance-inducing GIFs.  Inci uses a strange cloning effect on short snippets of video he often shoots in and around Istanbul, then turns these videos into animated the animated image file.  The numerous cloned figures coupled with the never-ending loop of the GIF results in a very unsettling animation.  It’s difficult to stop watching though the simple scene endlessly repeats.  The infinitely long line of figures walking in lockstep or perpetually repeating objects lend a feeling not unlike that of a fever dream.
