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!

“Happy Breakfast” by Artist Gary Card

“Happy Breakfast” is a psychedelic zine by set designer and artist Gary Card. Filled with colourful and chaotic images that blur the line between cute and creepy, what began as a commission for Japanese magazine Them, has turned into something of an ongoing experiment thanks to London-based publishers Katie Bagley and Ferry Gouw of New World International. See more images below.
