Wolf and Unicorn: A Pretty, Horrible Love Story in GIF Art

March 12, 2014 | Marina Galperina

Artist Andrew Benson’s new ongoing GIF Tumblr Wolf + Unicorn tells the story of a codependent and violent relationship between a unicorn and a wolf.

Benson’s GIF for the David Bowie tribute projections at his retrospective was similarly psychotic. He’s also lent a texture coordinate manipulation shader to Adam Ferris for his glitch work.

His earlier, more complex work includes INTOTHEZONE — a video tribute to Tarkovsky’s Stalker and its literary inspiration by the Strugatsky Brothers, Roadside Picnic. This is how he re-imagines rambling through the “The Zone.” There’s a neon pink drone.
