GIF of the Day: And The Award Goes to Wallpapers!

by Paddy Johnson on September 15, 2014

Let’s face it: last week’s GIF Free For All awards were a hot bed of incest, corruption and petty politics. It’s time to set the record straight. The real GIF Awards need to go to Wallpapers. Why? Because these are gifs that can be tiled, and we all know bigger is better.

Wallpapers is a collaborative project founded in 2011 by artists Sara Ludy, Nicolas Sassoon and Sylvain Sailly. Now in its second iteration, Wallpapers has been shown at 319 Scholes in New York (curated by Lindsay Howard), Western Front in Vancouver (curated by Sarah Todd), and PAMI Festival in London (curated by Bubblebyte.org). This latest iteration (the second), will show at the New Forms Festival 12 in Vancouver (curated by Malcolm Levy). Participants include Laura Brothers, Rollin Leonard, Sara Ludy, Lorna Mills, Brenna Murphy, Sylvain Sailly, Nicolas Sassoon, Rick Silva, Krist Wood.

And now to the burning question: Who has made the best GIF? I announce a tie between Sylvain Sailly, Rick Silva and Laura Brothers! These GIFs couldn’t look more different from each other, but they both possess the same quality: Graphic appeal. As a viewer, you want to see the loop completed. There may be no better marker of a good GIF.

Looks like Paddles ON! London, is on its way to replicating the strides made during last year’s much-discussed net-art auction, the first at a major auction house. Last fall, the auction held in New York at Phillips totalled $90,600 on the sale of 16 pieces out of 20 lots. People widely lauded the auction as a success—a GIF sold for $1,300 and the excitement from the live auction crowd was palpable—but financially, the case for Paddles ON! achievements aren’t clear cut. Nine of the works sold for less than their estimated bids, and four of those were bought in by the auction house.

Featured Artist: Out4Pizza

I’m obsessed with the work of digital artist Laura Brothers, aka out4pizza.  Much like intaglio prints, straight lines are masterfully woven to create incredibly intricate forms in both animated and still drawings. Layers of line and color often drift and glide, utilizing hard edges to create softness and gradients. Some highlights from her work on livejournal and the Computers Club:
