Saw this a while back, but think the concept is interesting... taking animated GIFs to another level and making it about isolated micro-movements.
I like how this digital artist created an animated GIF image (to make an otherwise still-photo appear as video in an artistically limited way) .. the term these days seems be be "Cinemagraphs". If it works correctly (barber pole and reflection spins), perhaps I'll share a few others. If not, follow the link to where it was found. You'll see it and many others on the page working. These are by Jamie Beck and Kevin Burg. The barber shop isn't even the best. ~Timo
