This is just one reason why we wish Sally McKay would make more GIFs, and more often.
GIFs condense a life down to just a few seconds; lucky for them, they’re continually reincarnated via a loop. You can be a simple object, or complicated one. The result is the same. This bisected brain has just one function, to jump up and down—but the rest of Shachar Bechor‘s GIF isn’t so simple. It’s hard to tell just what it is you’re looking at, complicated by the aftereffect of the light-colored brain “cloud” that appears after the jump. Then there’s a nice bit of sleek, digital-ness contrasting with those basic, drab gray dots in the background. That mixture gives this GIF a plus in my book.
Cancel whatever you’re doing at 7 PM tonight, readers. Paddy Johnson will be critiquing the finalists of ArtPrize, in the 3D and time-based categories. (Peruse the finalists here. Watch the Livestream here.) The stakes are high; we expect some animated debate to light up twitter tonight.
And the rest of the week looks equally promising: fashion snarker Simon Doonan talks menswear, the New York Film Fest continues, and Philadelphia’s Vox Populi Gallery sees a weekend filled with Videofreex, Jeanine Oleson, and Jaimie Warren.
Yoshi Sodeoka made a torrential number of GIFs like this on Google+ back in the day. (That day was 2011, to be exact.) Each and every one of the psychedelica GIFs show a completely different range of graphic movement—raining, exploding, melting, draining, everything.
Do you know about YouTube Poop? Office poll: Probably not. But you should know where your art comes from.
