The Present by Jon Jacobsen Explores What People Feel in the Now

Humans are creatures of emotion and the animated GIF series titled The Present by Jon Jacobsen, an artist and photographer based in Santiago, Chile, visualizes some of the turmoil individuals feel at any given moment. Although dark and somewhat depressing, these surreal and twisted imagery are arguably not too far off of the mark.

From distorted facial features to exploding colors and mirage-like elements, The Present by Jon Jacobsen captures what can be considered, at least on a larger scale, confusion over identity as well as simpler interpretations that revolve around the five senses. Interestingly, Jacobsen writes, "As a child I dreamt of becoming an astronaut, now I create a universe myself." His world is certainly an evocative and imaginative one.
