Colorful, animated art in a digital series called “Oddly Satisfying”. The abstract series is split into four volumes of 3D animations.
All videos are short loops of different interior objects and machines performing transfixing motions. This includes marbles rolling onto shafts, puzzle-piece configurations fitting together, and liquid textures twisting in perfect, endless circulation. The dynamic geometry is intended to trigger, as the title suggests, some kind of odd satisfaction, as well as what Wannerstedtrefers to as “That inexplicable feeling we all know”. Indeed, the animations are gratifying and indicative of the internet’s fascination with Autonomous sensory meridian response experiences, or ASMR: where colorful, looping graphics soothe the viewer’s psyche as they consume endless repetitions of digital content.
Andreas Wannerstedt is a Stockholm based artist and art director who crafts unique 3D sculptures and mesmerizing looping animations. The imagery of Andreas is both sophisticated and whimsical, featuring simple and playful geometric shapes in balanced compositions, together with organic textures and harmonizing color palettes. His perfectly synchronised animations has often been described as “oddly satisfying”, since the overall effect evokes a strangely hypnotizing feeling which makes the viewer relaxed and even meditative. Although his animations are vaguely based on real world behaviours, they often break the boundaries of tolerances, friction and gravity, enabling endless motions of the cleanest order.
During the last 13 years he’s been doing commissioned work for recognisable brands such as Google, Adidas, Ikea, Coca-Cola, Spotify, Absolut Vodka, Red Bull, Squarespace etc. His animations have fascinated millions of viewers around the world and his work has been highlighted on Vice, Behance Network and Mindsparkle Mag among others.
