Waiting time at public transport stops is perceived by passengers to be more onerous than in-vehicle time, hence it strongly influences the attractiveness and use of public transport. Transport models traditionally assume that average waiting times are half the service headway by assuming random passenger arrivals. However, research agree that two distinct passenger behaviour types exist: one group arrives randomly, whereas another group actively tries to minimise their waiting time by arriving in a timely manner at the scheduled departure time. 
Number five was different. He enjoyed waiting. Surrounded by vast emptiness of silent suburban station - he stared blankly at the massive wall of levitating projectors.

hi quiara, i did it in blackmagic fusion. it might seems like an overkill, but it's free and it renders acceptable aliased images in preview mode (only sometimes output needs cleaning of color palette). also it has great particle system (for example to create fire here: http://humanworlds.org/_temp/100-037-01---bonfire.gif - now that i think of it, i should upload this piece here as well). so give it a try! ;] 
in this case it was three steps process: first i made whole image in aseprite, then i exported the orange and green part as a slightly bigger image and used vortex node to make an animation in fusion (i believe vortex is basically same as liquify effect) and finally i imported rendered sequence back to aseprite and did retiming of animation, so the central whip is faster.

Wooooooooooooah. This is VERY cool. The composition is basically perfect, the color choices are on point, and the subject matter is an interesting mix of dayglo tie-dye patterning with muted cyberpunk aesthetics.

I'm extremely curious how you got that gorgeous animation, actually, but that might be a magic trick you don't want to reveal. (My guess is the Liquify function in Illustrator + a super high contrast + index remapping?)

Very hypnotic. The brash colours for the projectors were an interesting but effective choice. For me, they contrast very nicely with the more sombre blue lighting which heightens the look of isolation. I don't necessarily mean 'isolation' in a bad way – more of a pleasant melancholy; I'm excactly the kind of person who stares at things like this (although I wouldn't arrive at a train station early because I do also hate that).
