When I was young, someone once told me that different materials could convey different emotions. In his new series, poison, DarkAngelØne proves that the adage also applies to the digital age. Although the moving objects in these GIFs, of course, aren't made from real steel, wood, or buttons, computer generated imagery still retains certain feelings, including coldness and even warmth. By animating the fabrics and materials adorning their models, DarkAngelØne makes still fashion photographs come alive.


"Some people call me an artist, but I see myself as someone who just likes to play with pictures," the ever-humble DarkAngelØne writes in his personal introduction. Nevertheless, he manages to conjure the surreal out of the once-static, and for someone who claims to just be messing around, that's an achievement, indeed.
