Collection of Trippy and Strangely Satisfying Videos + Gifs (with no CGI)

Dry erase marker reacting to water


 
Lately I’ve been collecting videos that look like computer-generated imagery (CGI) but are actually real. There are art installations, optical illusions, science experiments, and a lot of clips where someone is filming something completely normal but because of the lighting or the camera shutter (in the case of the helicopter clip) the results look surreal.

I also have a very nerdy love of magic so maybe that’s actually the common thread here; perception versus reality. If you have suggestions for other videos that fit this theme please leave a comment, I’d love to keep adding to this collection. Shout out to r/woahdude.

Have a look at the videos below and you’ll get the idea! May need to give it a second to load!

Photographer Camilo José Vergara has committed more than four decades of his life to his photographic archive project “Tracking Time”. Year after year he has returned to poor, minority communities around the United States to re-photograph them from the same vantage points. In 2013, Vergara was awarded the National Humanities Medal by President Barack Obama, and was the first photographer ever to receive this honour.
