Prosthetic Knowledge Picks: The 3D Gif 

In this submission, with the animated GIF format both celebrating it’s 25th birthday and becoming the U.S. word of the year, I take a look at some creative projects which take the 2D format and takes it into another dimensional context.

Included are ‘Gifpumper’, a community GIF collage project which can place a series of GIFs in a 3D space, ‘Animated GIF in 3D’ which displays the GIF frames spatially (bottom left image), ‘GIF 3D Gallery’ which can take a GIF and place it on a virtual gallery plinth (top image), and ‘GLGIF’ (bottom right image), a piece of code which can be set up to create a spinning GIF video wall with music.

Also included to test these projects are GIFs by a few Tumblr artists - DVDP, V5MT and Max Capacity.

Ever get the feeling of deja vu when you’re watching something online? If you don’t then you sure will when looking at the visual experiments of filmmaker and graffiti artist Erdal Inci.
His video work features plenty of repetition where actions are cloned and repeated over and over in a continuous loop, marching after each other in a self-contained universe.
The results are a hypnotic and amusing look at motion that are the perfect fodder for GIFs—which is exactly what he’s done on his tumblr, turning his video experiments into the lexicon of the internet.

The Animated gif exhibition « Crap = Good→ blog

Last thursday the opening of ‘The animated Gif exhibition’ took place in Antwerp. It was a nice evening with lots of people, short conversations, a band, finger food and drinks, some speeches and a lot of gifs. Crap = Good presented the ‘Animated gif player’, a device, like its name suggests, capable of playing .gif file formats.

Marc Weidenbaum asked: “Wondering if there’s a sonic equivalent of (or parallel to) an animated GIF, and if so what it is.”
Tom Moody answered:

It would have to be (a) short, (b) a loop, (c) digitally timed, (d) compellingly misaligned in some way, (e) easily grasped by the listener but containing some subtleties that reveal themselves in repetition, and (f) pattern-based. Obviously we’re talking about the more abstract GIFs here, not a seagull strolling into a convenience store and stealing a bag of chips over and over.
In the process of pondering the question, Moody also recorded an example that fulfilled his hypothesis (MP3).
