Artist creates hilariously surreal GIFs from Library of Congress photos

Despite the myriad communication options we as a technologically advanced have at our fingertips (literally), sometimes nothing gets our point across better than a GIF. Despite the amount of weird ones (and arty samples) we've seen, none quite hit the vibe that Droga5's art director Kevin Weir concocts though. As This Is Colossal has spotted, Weir uses historic images from the Library of Congress' online archives to create the sometimes creepy animated photos you see above and below. Weir says that he started making these in an effort to keep himself busy during downtime at a grad-program internship, and has since started posting them to his blog Flux Machine. Next time you need a trump card in a GIF war, well, now you have another place to look.
