Lucas Ighile and Ayla El-Moussa have been sharing their art online since 2009, and “Deep Discovery” is their latest series, featuring a combination of static imagery and GIF animation. While it is not a true double-exposure, the style was popularized by “True Detectives” TV series which used this technique in its opening credits.
“Scientists and spiritual minds have told us for decades that the universe is within us,” Ighile and El-Moussa explain on their site. “Since the odds of exploring outer space as an astronaut are not favorable, we have decided to explore the universe within us. As well as a place we know less about than the cosmos: the ocean. We present to you our next series: deep discovery.”
