Stone Sculptures GIF Art by Zack Dougherty (aka Hateplow)

01

Portland-based GIF maker Zack Dougherty (alias Hateplow) created these ingenious animated GIFs by the use of photos and CINEMA 4D, a 3D modeling, animation and rendering application.

Hateplow captures HDR photos of the statues in galleries, scans them on his computer and then tinkers with them with software like Cinema 4D, where he perfects realistic light, shadows and reflection.

“The perception is that these GIFs or digital stuff in general, once it’s online it lives forever, which is true as long as we keep backing them up and reproducing the stuff on new palettes and develop new technologies that last longer than 10 or 15 years,” says Hateplow. “It can all be gone in an instant, which brings you back to stone and how powerful a stone statue is.”
