The brain-bending animations of Dave "my name is david and i make gifs" Whyte are among the most captivating we've ever seen.

Whyte, a Dublin-based PhD candidate studying the physics of foam, tells Colossal's Christopher Jobson "his first geometric gifs riffed on computational modules he was exploring while in undergrad." His Tumblr, Bees & Bombs, is updated regularly with new animations created with Processing, an open-source programming language. (The programmatically inclined would do well to check out Whyte's twitter feed, where he often links to his source code.) He's also available for freelance work.
