The Morning GIF: "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari"
Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.
Dr. Rev. ΘZNΣΘ™ is not your average GIF artist.
First of all, he has a trademark! Secondly, his work is always interesting and usually strikingly composed in high-contrast, with an existential point to make.
One of the best examples of his work is this GIF, which contrasts the studied nonchalance of a John Steed silhouette and the psychotic interiorscape of the German Expressionist silent film, The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari, to stunning effect.
Who will win: the self-possessed every man or his tumultuous surroundings? It’s a question that’s clearly resonated on Tumblr, as 1,832 people have made notes on this particular post.
