Some more or less recent stuff, focussed on GIFs. Or other web animations. Or something else loosely connected to that.
Tom Moody: gif interrogation of the day
“is this phone art or GIF art and does it matter?”
Redi, Miriam et. al.(2014): “6 Seconds of Sound and Vision: Creativity in Micro-Videos”
Research Paper about an algorithm to select “creative” vine videos by analysing statistical data. And here’s a less scholary article about it.
And last but not least, I’m proud to announce that I will be speaking at the Chaos Communication Congress (31C3) in Hamburg, Germany, later this month. The topic of my talk is “GIFs. The death of a medium. And its afterlife.” The talk will be in German but I suppose there will be live translation or subtitles or whatever:)
Edit: Haha, at first I wrote “algorythm”!
