artist george redhawk has turned a loss into a gift — after the artist became legally blind, he began to explore the realm of photo manipulation with a desire to show the world as he sees it from his damaged sight. 
through the use of computer softwares that aide the visually impaired, redhawk — who works under the name darkangeløne — has realized the ongoing series of animations titled, ‘the world through my eyes’.

to create most of my gifs, I am using a photo morphing software which I have been experimenting with, and perfecting over several years, redhawk tells graphic art news‘morphing software is designed to morph one photo to another photo, but a long time ago, I discovered that if I morph a photo to the exact same photo, I could get some pretty amazing movement out of it.’

‘following the loss of most of my vision, I began to explore this medium as a means to express the world through my damaged sight. my art is designed with the idea to challenge and in some cases, disturb the visual sense of ‘order’, very much in the same way that my vision has become a constant challenge to me. it is also for this reason i refer to my work as, the world through my eyes.’
