Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Bleeding Palm animates Miami's underground scene with psychedelic humor. So we've employed them to make the Magic City feel more magical with animated GIFs.

Read more about these freaky "fireworks" after the jump.

Artist's statement: "This GIF is of some alien-type stuff the guys at Coral Morphologic have. It's orange. They have all kinds of crazy stuff. It is from Mars, it has powers. They have other stuff from all over the universe. They collect the aliens and make art with them. It's basically considered slave labor in some parts of the galaxy. You can even buy little space things from their store. What a time to be alive!

"And.....Fireworks! Because, Happy Fourth of July!

"Correction: One of spacemen from Coral Morphologic tells me the orange thing is Tubastrea coccinea."

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
