“Artist and photographer Erdal Inci has created a hypnotic series of GIFs
that takes the concept of cloned motion to a truly eerie level. Often using images of himself in mundane situations, Inci transforms simple snapshots into entrancing video loops. Believe us, these clips will haunt your computer screen while you attempt to decipher the unique patterns.” The Huffington Post
Erdal İnci (born 1983 in Ankara) is a Turkish new media artist, as well as painter, photographer, filmmaker and graffiti artist based in Istanbul. He is primarily known for his cloned action looped videos, which are presented online in a reduced GIF format.
The artist himself refers to these works as videos rather than GIF animations “because they are originally video works [exhibited] in video format […],” explaining, “There’s no difference other than the size of the video.”
