Watching the animation Idle, Torrent by Alex Moy is like watching the most relaxing screen saver ever produced, or perhaps an old school music visualizer that slowly morphs between trippy patterns and colors. Although it is akin to familiar technological systems, there really isn’t an easy way to describe the deeply harmonious flow that occurs during the two and a half minute short film. We suggest you just sit back, relax, and enjoy, especially in tandem with the soundtrack created by Brian “The Bee” Natalio. For more of Moy’s animations, including an interactive line drawing located on the home page, check out his website. (via Vimeo Staff Picks)
