8-Bit Animations of Modern Life

Shanghai-based illustrator and animator Ailadi Cortelletti has found a way to turn ancient software into delightful GIFs. Using PETSCII—a character set commonly used in old 8-bit home computers—she transforms the quirks of modern life into mesmerizing, pixelated animations. Ranging from a mom feeding her child to a teppanyaki dinner party, her light-hearted digital creations are shared regularly on her Instagram account.
