Artist Qi Wei Fong creates 4th dimension art by compiling the same image in different lights together into GIFs.

The GIF is a unique art form in and of itself. Able to portray a range of motion impossible in a photo while still more compact than a full video. Still, GIFs are typically used on the web to express reaction or to share a funny clip with others. Artist Qi Wei Fong used the medium to portray a range of light on some of the most beautiful cityscapes and landscapes.

Time in Motion, as the collection is called, uses GIFs in order to show the passage of time in different areas for 2 to 4 hours. Fong chose locations in China, Indonesia, and Bali, and then compiled the images together in geometric shapes. In this way, Fong could represent that subtle passage of time from light to darkness in the same image.
