Graphic Interchange Format, GIFs, are moving bitmap images that often only last a few seconds. Because of their kinetic and infinite nature, GIFs possess an unwavering and often hypnotizing ability to grab our attention. Although GIFs can only support 256 colors and are not suitable for high quality image capturing, the GIFS simple ability hold our attention has been its key to longevity and potential as a medium. Tumblr.com is a blogging platform that also has exhibits qualities of a social networking website. Users can create posts or share others on their personal blogs. Tumblr users often create and posts gifs as a means of capturing events, sharing information, and presenting artwork. I find that GIF posts or posts containing GIFs, as opposed text posts or still image posts or even video posts, reach more blogs and viewers. As a response, Tumblr users often present information in GIF format. For example, when wanting to share information, instead of transcribing a short blurb from the Daily Show by John Stewart, users will often opt to post a GIF visually and literarily documenting the show because users know that GIFs most often get more attention and viewers. I find GIFs most fascinating as a means of documentation. I create wearable sculptures and the most challenging aspect of my craft is deciding the manner in which I should document them, consequently, deciding how these pieces should live. I created an installation/ performance/ interactive piece in which I covered the the four walls and floor of a room with wallpaper. I dressed four female performers in dresses made of wallpaper and had each stand on a separate wall. Without telling them what was in the room, I then asked audience members to take off their shoes and enter into the installation room one by one. Once in the room, the four performers were directed to stare at the member of the audience until the left. After 20 seconds, the audience members were ushered out of the installation. I found that many members of the audience were overwhelmed by the installation and found themselves spinning around, staring at each performer and attempting to capture the entire installation. In the documentation of this piece, I wanted to mimic this same motion and overwhelming feeling. I found that still images were unable to do this and that video, even when looped, was unable to replicate the feeling of participating in the installation. I captured images in order to create a panorama of the installation, but found myself unable to actual render a panoramic photo. In a last ditch effort, I used these same images to create a GIF and I found that the kinetic infinite images perfectly replicated the audience’s overwhelming experience with the installation piece. And I look forward to continue using GIFs and dynamic form of documentation.
