The medium at this point is animated GIFS and the reason I would state clearly that it’s animated
GIFS is that there are so many restrictions and constraints with the file format. You know, 256 colors,
your frame rates are much lower than film so that there is a jerky motion and that to me is really
important. Because, you recognize when you are looking at them that your eye, your brain is not as
tricked by the illusion of motion with animated GIFS as it is with film. And even if I dump it to a video
it still got the gifiness of it. So yeah, animated GIFS, That´s an easy answer.
There are some times when there is a certain animation that becomes a linchpin for a whole piece. I
would say that´s almost true of almost every piece if have done that there is something special.
Either it´s a dog walking while he´s got one of his hind feet in his mouth or something like that. That
has some kind of abjection to it. Or, something ridiculous like some guy riding naked on a bicycle
wanking like, what? (laughing)
And the fact that someone saw that it is like an old media, I don´t describe it that way, I describe it as
a very successful media. Even before art magazines and, general interest magazines online were
taking an interest in animated GIFS. People were making them! So it´s not like they just kind of
popped out of nowhere. Since 1987 since the file format came along, since it was born (laughing),
people have been producing them and posting them on various sites.
