Fine artist and designer INSA (previously) continues creating his signature animated “GIF-iti” pieces in locations around the world. Each mural is painted and photographed in sequence to create up to 8 individual layers (or frames) which are then animated into what you see here, a process than can take several days. In 2013 INSA also had the opportunity to travel to Kubuneh Village in Gambia where he was invited to create several of his works on local structures as part of the Wide Open Walls project.

Green-Hope transformed the old books, clothes, jewelry and photos into this touching stop-motion portrait. Also, spoiler: her grandmother shot a spider. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
