Moments of brilliance from Picasso to Einstein turned into the abstract GIFs/digital art that Rafaël Rozendaal is so famous for.
In a project for AND, Rafaël Rozendaal created a series called Happy Mondays–a new Abstract GIF that debuted each Monday to kick off the work week, inspired by a famous quote.
“Action is the foundational key to all success.”
So Thomas Edison’s “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work,” becomes a series of somewhat random, imperfect shapes on a variety of backgrounds. Pablo Picasso’s “Action is the foundational key to all success,” is a gradient circle, spinning round and round infinitely. And while every image is quite different than the one before it, devoid of any thematic color palette or aesthetic basis, a certain hyperactive positivity creates a theme that burns right into your retinas.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.”
“In the view of Infinity, any defined long-term is short-term.”
from God Emperor of Dune, Frank Herbert
“Success is walking from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm.”
“One great cause of failure is lack of concentration.”
“A goal is a dream with a deadline.”
“You will never reach your destination if you stop and throw stones at every dog that barks.”
“Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.”
“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.”
“Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.”
