Bill Domonkos, a visual artist and filmmaker, has used special effects to turn historic images into quirky monochromatic Gifs. The artist, whose work has been shown in festivals, cinemas and museums worldwide, has turned these traditional black and white photographs into something new, and even a little funny.

In one image, a giant mushroom is positioned in front a man's face and the Gif floats and twirls in a pirouette fashion. Another image is of a bathroom, but Domonkos has put a prancing horse Gif in the sink running on the spot. Some animations are slightly disturbing -- like a fetus floating in a fishbowl on a dinner table. The images convey a creative and bizarre style and the monochrome emphasizes the microscopic details of, for example, the eyeballs that move on the man's fancy shirt.
