GIFs condense a life down to just a few seconds; lucky for them, they’re continually reincarnated via a loop. You can be a simple object, or complicated one. The result is the same. This bisected brain has just one function, to jump up and down—but the rest of Shachar Bechor‘s GIF isn’t so simple. It’s hard to tell just what it is you’re looking at, complicated by the aftereffect of the light-colored brain “cloud” that appears after the jump. Then there’s a nice bit of sleek, digital-ness contrasting with those basic, drab gray dots in the background. That mixture gives this GIF a plus in my book.
