The Morning GIF: "The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari"

Shares

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.
