The New York Times might be behind the times on a lot of things, but its art department is doing a great job commissioning editorial images. This Peter Burr’s GIF of adjoining heads quite abstractly sums up a story about media tailored to our own tastes. Another illustration by my friend Armando Veve beautifully complements an image of a baby’s life saved by heart surgery.
And they chose well again in Peter Burr’s treadmill-of-lenses GIF, which accompanies letters responding to Bill Keller’s column “Living With the Surveillance State“. It works for the story, but it also works on its own.
