In photography and videography, moiré is usually considered a negative artifact of camera equipment that should be avoided whenever possible, but Mexican artist Gabriel Dawes' 'Moiré Collection' for commercial flooring services manufacturer Mannington shows that the dreamy visual effect can be an attractive feature in and of itself. The new series of carpeting designs are colorful and illusory, using a fine interweaving of lines to create a dazzling optical illusion.

Even in a monochromatic setting, moiré is a captivating effect (whether camera operators want it in their shot or not). The effect happens when tight matrices of dots or lines intersect with one another, and its wavy, rippling appearance can impact camera equipment and the naked eye alike. Dawes' and Mannington's 'Moiré Collection' aims to recreate that illusion through color and pattern.
