The Morning GIF: Eye on the future

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.

Eye is for Internet, and today's GIF personifies that. From artist Peekasso, it's one of a series on consciousness and the seemingly relentless information stream.

It can seem inescapable: Are we the consumers of information, or simply its victims, locked into receiving mode and powerless to look away?

This GIF is called "One Way." A gorgeous, gigantic green eye, haloed in gold, with a never-ending high speed highway, forever racing towards the point of focus, headed towards the light; this is not the vision of an optimist. In the information superhighway, there is no speed limit. Just remember to buckle up and blink once in awhile.
