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."
