Petra Švajger is an artist in Ljubjana, Slovenia. She describes herself as a fashion design graduate who never felt like she was a fashion designer. So she’s explored photographic and digital artwork instead. In particular, Švajger has raised the animated .gif file to an art form. The above example is from her series called Weird Flu.
She has also used .gifs to create what she calls an “anxiety self portrait.” Pictured above is nyctophobia, which is fear of the dark. She also has thalassophobia (fear of the sea), cynophobia (fear of dogs), and social anxiety.
