“There should be more room for fun in art” – Animated Gif Mashup Studio Workshop with Evan Roth | Video Vortex

“There should be more room for fun in art” – Animated Gif Mashup Studio Workshop with Evan Roth | Video Vortex | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
"[...]However, the workshop during the Video Vortex wasn’t about activist issues or promoting free culture, but about making gifs.

We all know gifs, or graphic interchange formats, probably as those geeky granular images of dancing people or singing cats. Their old school image is why Evan things they’re cool. But I was still wondering why Evan decided to let us work with gifs. I had in mind that his answer would have something to with open source and free culture, since everyone is free to collect and spread gifs and use them for other purposes. But he surprised me by saying that his main point for that day was just having fun. “There should be more room for fun in art”. He told me how his other lectures and workshops were more directly linked with politics, but that he felt like really doing something else this day. He wanted us to just play with gifs, get our hands dirty. He did add that he clearly sees how gifs are important in an ideological sense, since they create some sort of overall image of the internet right now, they’re all small time capsules. So from a historical point of view it is important to curate them somewhere where they can’t get lost.

The future of the ubiquitous gifs? Hard to say, according to Evan. He feels they had their peak in 2010, when ‘We Make Money Not Art’ started growing bigger and bigger. At the beginning of the internet era gif and jpeg were the standard form, but slowly they were overtaken by png and flash (for movies). This is why Evan isn’t sure how gif will develop in the upcoming years, so most important is to make sure that all previous gifs are saved in a good database.By Anna Jacobs Last Thursday (10-03) I attended a workshop about animated gif mashups led by the artist Evan Roth.[...]"

GIF-ITTI - outdoor animated graffiti GIF - INSA

GIF-ITTI - outdoor animated graffiti GIF - INSA | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
“The beauty of INSA’s GIF-ITI is that it only truly lives when viewed online, where these days most street art ends up being viewed, and it exaggerates the ephemeral nature of graffiti as each layer is painted instantly over the last. Mixing retro internet technology and labour intensive painting, INSA creates slices of infinite un-reality, cutting edge art for the tumblr generation.”

What happens when you die? - Tabor Robak

What happens when you die? - Tabor Robak | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
HERE IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU DIE:

1...Your body shuts down
( the organs ) and mummyfication begins.

2...Your soul slowly leaves the body
(this occurs during the rigor mortis process.)

3...Your soul might be drawn into a tunnel toward a bright light .
( your aura reached a state of pure energy )

4...Your soul might enter another human being
(acts of love and compassion - you reach the nessesary state of pure energy* )

5....Your soul might enter the co - existance between man and the universe.
(death in human bodies in the mortal world ..)

6....Your soul might simply perish if the purification process is unsuccessful ..
(souls would go to a place filled with the comforts of our earthly existance)

BUT WAIT... THERE IS STILL HOPE!!!

Julian Opie - film - walking - 2011

Julian Opie - film - walking - 2011 | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
"Julian Opie is one of the most significant artists of his generation whose artistic preoccupation has investigated the idea of representation and the means by which images are perceived and understood. Throughout his practice, Opie has developed his own reductive formal language which seeks to reflect, not reality itself, but rather the way in which reality is represented: his distinctive language of discipline and formal consistency which is employed in his current portrait and landscape work.

Drawing from influences as diverse as billboard signs, classical portraiture and sculpture, to classical Japanese woodblock prints, Opie 'paints' using a variety of media and technologies which enable him to make three-dimensional explorations of his subjects.

Julian Opie lives and works in London."

Videogramo // Francoise Gamma

Videogramo // Francoise Gamma | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
"Objetos ontológicos del folklore electrónico. Basados en idolatrías totales, siempre al borde del abismo."

"Surreal worlds collide and explode in urge to become visible. People, whose skin absorbed hallucinations of a last psychedelic trip, stare at you with empty eyes. They make love, play games and participate in some strange, indescribable, yet attractive events…

This is not a description of some sci-fi movie. This is Videogramo – an artist from Barcelona, pouring out his mind in a form of animated or static images, which colours send us back in time, when computers where still young. Below is a small interview to helps us get closer to his creative paradigm.[...]"

Saul Chernick : Animated Gifs

Saul Chernick : Animated Gifs | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
This site contains artworks by Saul Chernick...
"[...] I’m the type of person that can’t help thinking about scary things. As a child I had a hard time falling asleep because of all the frightening pictures I’d imagine. Since then I’ve learned to look for the funny side of scary stuff. The artworks seen here were inspired by an old book called the Heideberger Totentanz (1488). I was attracted to it because the skeletons seemed more humorous than threatening. Even though they’re more than 500 years old they reminded me of cartoons today. I wondered about the kinds of new adventures they might have. Since I found them on the computer I wondered what it be like if they could continue living in computers. Rather than re-drawing them by hand I used my computer to change them. I posed them in different positions and put them in new situations. It’s my way of celebrating the art of the past using the technology of today!"

Spirit Surfers - Kevin Bewersdorf

Spirit Surfers - Kevin Bewersdorf | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
"[...]What qualifies as a "boon" in Spirit Surfing? Can you describe the physical experience that occurs when you discover a boon?

Try to wrap yourself around this cliché -- if surfing is wandering for 40 days and 40 nights in a desert, the boon is the vision brought back from the quest and the wake is the path of the whole quest's footsteps. The boon is like a jewel, a memento from a moment when the sacred nature of the web was clearly revealed to the surfer. In my experience the boon may spur on a deeper search, provide an idea for some kind of poetic game, sum up an emotional reaction to a particular zone of the web, or just float there like an impenetrable nugget outside of language. A lot of people have responded to the boon and wake separation on Spirit Surfers with confusion, as if there was some right or wrong way to interpret the juxtaposition. Really the boon/wake is only meant to set up a dialogue that, through repeated investigation, might eventually take on its own definition and allow the post to be not just about itself but also about the greater structure around it. On Spirit Surfers we have set up this structure to be continually practiced, and we are only just beginning to figure the conversation out.[...]"

Stephanie Davidson - GIFs | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
"[...]Contemporary artists who are interested in online culture pay special attention to GIFs as a Web phenomena and a file format include the Canadian Stephanie Davidson, who creates GIFs from found online footage, using lo-fi animation techniques and abstract, looping narratives, reminiscent of vernacular GIF animations that have been copied millions of times. Her GIFs are so complete and visually compact that it would be impossible to use them in the aforementioned collages. The focus is on the file format itself.[...]"

"[...]Using only animated gifs, simple html and the browsers feature of progressive downloading (downloading content from top to bottom, left to right, see image above left) Peter manages to create some work which is without a doubt net.art but the type that a painter might create. He seems to have quite a few references, obvious ones such as post Abstract Expressionism painting, Mark Rothko (colour field), Sol LeWitt, Frank Stella etc. but also references within web culture, use of webcams, codecs, digital video and the visual result they give, surveillance etc.[...]"

His work benefits from stylized pseudo-retro aesthetics, characterized by lurid colors, moving patterns, and bitmap. His work is quite delicious when it wanders through notional objects, sanctities, and sanguine wordplay.[...]"
