In the countdown to the Art F City 10th Anniversary Auction honoring artist Laurie Anderson, we’ll be previewing GIFs from our 10th Anniversary GIF and Print Portfolio, a limited-edition suite of prints and GIFs that includes work by Morehshin Allahyari, Jennifer Chan, Faith Holland, Sara Ludy, Claudia Maté, Rosa Menkman, Lorna Mills, Eva Papamargariti, Angela Washko, and Giselle Zatonyl. Today, we’re previewing Faith Holland’s “Equivalents.”
The heavens exploded and in its wake, we received clouds. Not just any clouds, though: Faith Holland’s painterly GIF, “Equivalents,” shows us a milieu of digital and analog clouds that defy time and space. They’re trans-dimensional, trans-chronological. But none of that makes this a crazy GIF. No, it’s a scene of organized chaos. Every Mario-Brothers cloud stays in its own lane, never crashing into the serious gray stratus clouds that plod along at a different speed. To each their own, in this racetrack in the sky.
