Perfect GIFs of Vintage Technology

April 25, 2014 | Marina Galperina

For his “Relics of Technology” series, photographer Jim Golden didn’t just take immaculate, clean photographs of a reel-to-reel tape recorder, a vintage typewriter and a brick-sized cellphone, so perfectly you’d think they were actually CGI renders by Takeshi Murata.

He didn’t just incorporate minimal, gestural animations of softly spinning reels, blinking buttons and a franticly jittering… uh… whatever you call the external appendage of a phone that you had to physically, not metaphorically, “pick up” to answer a call.

He also presented them all in such tenderly nostalgic and harmonious color schemes of dull rose, industrial-plastic creme and dusty pastels. Very pretty. Thank you. (Images: Jim Golden via DesignBoom)
