Like a TV screen gone kaput. Like a poison-filled horizon. Like a …? I don’t know what’s going on in this GIF exactly, but I like the haziness of it; that stands in contrast to so many of the hard-edge GIFs we typically see. Thanks, Sabrina Ratté.
As of 2011, North Korea has earned $160 million in commissions from international governments to build and export colossal sculptures. These monuments, with their smooth unwrinkled hands, joyous smiles, and innocent demeanor cover up humanitarian catastrophes with a hokey grin. Thus is the aesthetic of Disney Despotism.
The price of GIFs is going up. This one retails at $5,800. More after the jump.
The speed of this GIF is incredible: it whooshes left to right, without any metronome-like regularity. So it’s kind of like listening to someone play piano in 4/4 rhythm, but who breaks with that regularity every several notes. Just because they can, and because they know how. Originally this GIF was part of the Wrong Biennial. Though the GIFs on that site have been removed, you can still see Yoshi Sodeoka’s Plan 9 Channel 12 Pavilion here.
Scott Gelber, we’ve all been there.
“Fucking prolific” is a phrase that comes to mind when paging through Claudia Maté’s web portfolio. Just based on the thirty-nine websites, GIFs and videos on her site, you might think she’s well into her late thirties. Her resume is equally long, listing exhibitions at MoMA, The Art Gallery of Ontario, and Wayne State University.
