Unlike many of looped GIFs, this image has a nice conceptual meaning beyond visual satisfaction. Titled "Rush Hour", the GIF highlights the complexity of human decentralized route-planning ability. Think subway in NYC, somehow people are able to navigate through crowd without any communication. This, even with full communication, is an NP-hard problem. The image, with high visual complexity, highlight this fact vividly.
It is hard to play with colors of high saturation. And this image demonstrates it well.
It is just an image that visualize a 2D function, but it let me stare at it for a long time. As an art, it does not sacrifice any accuracy to make the visualization more interesting.
