Web-based animation has gone to some pretty interesting places—most recently, Scarlett Johansson’s bedroom—but we didn’t expect anything quite as abstract as this.

The Drawing Archive is a site run by the pencil artist Adam Thompson, and it’s currently sporting one of the most interesting Flash slideshows we’ve ever seen. The images are all simple geometric pencil drawings, but they’re strung together with a mind-bending series of free associations and visual rhymes, making for a genuinely hallucinatory five minutes.

It’s time well spent…although you might want to save it for a less sunny day.
