Am participating in this fine publication/exhibition, just posted today:
Human Kibble Winter 2010 Catalog
A group GIF collaboration organized by Duncan Alexander
Mary Rachel Kostreva
Am not sure if human kibble is dogfood for people or something like Soylent Green, but most products advertised in the catalog are not pet food. Mine were hardware--couplings and tool chests. The way the show worked is, Alexander posted real retail catalog pages that he found, and participants were asked to make GIFs of them. The pages were so middlebrow it was a serious challenge to think of anything creative to do with them. Mine are under-manipulated, but I wanted the essential banality of the original layouts to shine through.
Update: Sentences reordered for journalistic "flow."
Update 2: JO says Human Kibble is a reference to Philip K Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?--haven't read it in a while, will hunt for an excerpt.
