Influential U.K. artist INSA has been using “retro internet technology” to breathe animated life into his graffiti writing since 2010. The art form, which he has dubbed GIF-ITI, involves painstakingly photographing multiple hand-painted layers of each piece of art and overlaying the shots to create fun, often cartoon-like moving pictures.
These animated GIFs – or “slices of infinite un-reality” – were intended to be viewable solely online, playing with the traditional dynamics between art in the physical world and art on the web. Now, though, thanks to INSA’s new GIF-ITI Viewer app, fans on the street can use their iPhones and iPads to instantly transform seemingly static-looking INSA GIF-ITI creations into animated augmented reality loops. INSA calls it “cutting-edge art for the Tumblr generation.”
Well… you certainly don’t see this every day!
I love this …
Here’s a fun collection of stereographic animated gifs.
Aren’t these fun?
Wowsers! I wouldn’t want to meet her in a dark hallway of a haunted mansion!
This one has a nice little creep factor… youth and death!
Gives me the creeps just looking at it! Yikes!
A little more subtle, but weird nonetheless.
Ok, that’s hilarious!
Definitely a witch!
A beautiful sparkly, hypnotic, kinetic art sculpture to brighten your day!
I find these strangely disturbing!
