30 Amazing Stanley Kubrick Cinemagraphs + Cinemagraph Tutorial

30 Amazing Stanley Kubrick Cinemagraphs + Cinemagraph Tutorial | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it

"Cinemagraphs are still photographs in which a minor and repeated movement action occurs. The term “cinemagraph” was coined by U.S. photographers Kevin Burg and Jamie Beck, who used the technique to animate their fashion and news photographs beginning in early 2011.

They are produced by taking a series of photographs or a video recording, and, using image editing software, compositing the photographs or the video frames into an animated GIF file in such a manner that motion in part of the subject between exposures (for example, a person’s dangling leg) is perceived as a repeating or continued motion. (See Tutorial Links at the end of this Article.)"

Art numérique et mécénat : le marché émergent des GIF | The Creators Project

Art numérique et mécénat : le marché émergent des GIF | The Creators Project | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
Vous pourrez bientôt ajouter des œuvres immatérielles à votre collection d'art.

"L’immatérialité est le principal problème posé par le net art. Cet art n’existe qu’en ligne à l’état numérique, à l’inverse de l’art traditionnel, physique, dont on peut calculer la valeur concrètement en mesurant les compétences mobilisées et la tangibilité finale des œuvres. On peut accrocher un tableau sur son mur, mais on ne peut pas suspendre une œuvre de net art dans son salon. Cela ne signifie pas pour autant qu’un fichier ne peut pas être considéré comme un objet de collection au même titre qu’un tableau, et le dernier projet de Kim Asendorf entend justement attribuer une valeur monétaire à des fichiers numériques pour les intégrer au circuit des collections d’art. Pour franchir cette étape décisive vers un futur où l’art en ligne serait autant collectionnable que l’art physique, il a créé GIF Market, un outil qui permet à chacun d’acheter un fichier GIF, de le conserver en ligne et d’y apposer son nom..."

The animated Gif competition « Crap = Good

The animated Gif competition « Crap = Good | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it

Since the invention of the animated gif in 1987 the moving image became a well spread fact on the Internet. A simple 8 bit per pixes movie clip with a limited 256 color palette makes it easy to distribute and load. On the way they lost some popularity by the possibility to spread high quality video’s due to the increasing speed of Internet. Today, more and more the gif is experiencing an upraise in popularity and even entering the field of Art.

The animated gif was invented in 1987, which makes us wonder if there is a gif today still looping since then. Seeing there is no record of the longest playing gif, this competition and exhibition will mark the start of the loop.

========================

ASSIGNMENT

Make an animated gif in a circle of exactly 250 x 250 px. Everything else will not be accepted, so no squares, triangles, trapeziums or circles of 249 px.

========================

REWARD

As reward for your submission and time spend on making a nice and original gif we can promise you that a big selection of animated GIF’s will be shown in an exhibition, and maybe more. Seeing this competition as more of an experiment, possible rewards can grow, maybe a publication will appear.

========================

DEADLINE

The competition remains open until we have received 1000 gif animations.It’s an open competition, and all entries will be put online as soon as we receive and process them. The jury is you, trough the voting system all viewers can vote for their favourite GIF. It is also possible that there will be exhibitions during the competition. The first exhibition is planned for November 2011 so if you want to make it for the exhibition send in your entry on time.

========================

DELLIVERY

Send your GIF file of the circle + your first name and surname + city and country trough the contact-form on the SUBMIT page. Some more info in this post as well.

Apologie du gif : poncifs - by Leponceur

Apologie du gif : poncifs - by Leponceur | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it

"Histoire du gif

Cet article n’a pas pour but de raconter l’émergence et l’utilisation première du format .gif, certains s’y sont attelés bien avant moi. Non, ce qui est intéressant, c’est d’analyser la raison du regain d’intérêt pour ce format ces derniers temps. J’ai décidé de finaliser cet article après avoir entendu moult fois « Non, mais le seul intérêt de Google+ par rapport à Facebook, c’est les Gifs.. ». Mais commençons quand même par un petit rappel historique.

L’intérêt premier du format gif (Graphics Interchange Format) était sa compression et sa rapidité d’affichage quel que soit la page. Le format a été rapidement étendu afin de permettre l’enregistrement de plusieurs images, et donc d’une animation. Et ce fut le début de la folie."

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!"

ASCII Animation (ASCIImation) - Morph - Skylined

ASCII Animation (ASCIImation) - Morph - Skylined | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
ASCII animation (ASCIImation) written in JavaScript that morphs several ASCII images to each other and a mandelbrot fractal animation, also via JavaScript.

 

"ASCIImation is the combination of the two words ASCII and Animation and a very unique and rare type of ASCII art, although it became one of the better known types of ASCII art outside the ASCII art scene thanks to the use in mainstream media music videos etc.

While traditional ASCII art is made by made by the artist (despite the tools that exist to convert images to ASCII etc.), is ASCIImation done that way very rare and often very short. Some exceptions are some of the older ACiD and iCE ANSI animations from 1991 and 1992.

ASCIImations are usually done with the help of computers that convert video frames to text or use routines that render pre-calculated effects on the fly and decide programatically which character should be used to get the best result. Doing that right is an art of its own and not that easy to do. For that reason do I consider ASCIImation to be text ART as well. On the other hand are people who use those tools and methods not artists in my eyes. You might be able to call them designers, but that is about as far as I would go. Somebody who tries to sell people his converted imagery as hand made art pieces he creeated himself are simply fraud and I have no love for them whatsoever."

GIF Animation Browser - "I made the first animated "under construction" - 1996

GIF Animation Browser -  "I made the first animated "under construction" - 1996 | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
"I made the first animated "under construction" icon! Here it is!
In 1995 I had a site called the "Micro Movie Mini Multiplex" (MMMM). It originated as a collection of push animations. Push animation isn't used anymore, but it involved feeding individual animation frames through "server push", which means that a connection between the server and the client was kept alive while individual frames were fed through the connection. It was resource intensive, but when the site began it was the only way to do animation on the web. I collected every example I could find on the web and built a site that aggregated these animations. I tied the individual animations together through (what I thought was) clever commentary. The site was relatively popular (it was Spider's Pick of the Day, who remembers that?)
In December of 1995 I was searching the web for more push animations when I came across an unusual reference to a new form of animation. Netscape 2.0 was in beta, and it could handle a new form of animation. Someone had hacked the GIF image format, tweaking the interlacing so that individual frames were displayed at regular temporal intervals. There were only a handful of examples, but it was obvious to me that these "animated GIFs" were a major improvement over server push animations; you didn't need to keep a connection alive and, more interestingly, the animations could be treated like any other image... you could save the image and reuse it. I realized that these animated gifs would replace server push animations.
I rebuilt MMMM. I'm not an artist, but I spent several feverish weeks animating. I took icons that were already standard on the web, imported them into Photoshop, then modified them pixel by pixel, frame by frame, until I had a bunch of animated icons. My total output from that time is here. (The rebuilt MMMM used a couple other Netscape 2.0 innovations; frames, image maps, and Javascript.)
And people loved it. They saved the animated icons and put them on their own pages. For a very short time my site was the major supplier of animation for other people's webpages. I had given the GIFs somewhat distinctive names, so I was able to track their dispersal through Altavista searches (Altavista returned pages that contained images with specific filenames) and at one point, estimating the traffic on these pages, it occurred to me that my animations were seen by more people daily than any other animation in history.
I did all this anonymously and without monetary reward (which made sense, somehow, in the early days of the web). Eventually animated GIFs became commonplace, annoying even, and my anonymous 15 minutes of fame faded. But someday I'd like to record the moment for posterity, even if I have to do so in some forgotten thread on some community weblog."

“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.[...]"

The Affect of Animated GIFs (Tom Moody, Petra Cortright, Lorna Mills) | Art & Education - Sally McKay | Animated Gif As Art | Scoop.it
"[...]How do the affects of software technologies inflect interactive online art experience? In this paper, I will specifically examine the affects of the animated GIF (short for Graphic Interchange Format), a ubiquitous graphic file format used by artists and non-artists alike. If any website contains an animated element that is self-contained, chances are high that it is a GIF. GIFs are small, simple files, easy to create and quick to download, making them widely accessible to a range of browsers and system speeds. I propose, however, that it is the affective qualities particular to animated GIFs that make them truly popular. [...]"
