I find his work annoying and frustrating, the presentation simple and slight. The ultimate aim is to misinform the already mindless—yet I love every one of these objects. I shouldn’t, but I do. To me, they represent the confusion and insanity of life, and give me hope that anyone’s misguided psychology can have something redeeming. I see a reflection of myself in Klaus.
Tumblr still remains the best stomping ground for random GIFs. I have no idea who made this deflated Kirby—or is it a stretched-out Boo from the Super Mario Brothers series? Regardless, there’s an element of spooky sadness here because this pink balloon-guy cannot escape its shadow. Props to the anonymous GIF artist, whoever you are, for compounding elements of video-game culture without treading into the ironic mash-up category. GIF courtesy of Eyeslikesu
