word dot com GIF (late '90s) -- enlarged

word_dot_com_400x400

So-called "art" GIFs were around in the late '90s -- I used to see them on Word.com. They were made mostly by graphic designers as opposed to self-identifying artistes. The above GIF came from there; the original was 102 x 128 pixels. I enlarged it to 400 x 400 using "nearest neighbor" resizing to preserve the sharp edges. Still, this is an incredibly small (19 kilobyte) GIF in terms of ecological impact, in case you are thinking about alternatives to binge-watching Mad Men. Not that you can look at this one for very long.

Forest Blob at Honey Ramka

forest_blob_at_honey_ramka

An installation shot of the "Forest Blob" animated GIF, shown with a projector, at the Honey Ramka opening last night.
Heuitae Yoon, who randomly came to the opening wearing that hat, was photographed by the stunned gallery.
Also, thanks to Diana Kingsley for this phone video documentation of the GIF: [1.3 MB .MOV file]
The crowd schmoozing makes an appropriate soundtrack.
