Ryan Seslow GIF-ing on 15 Folds.
My friends at 15folds invited me to participate in their awesome GIF collective this month of January 2014. The theme is LUCK. I submitted these 4 GIFs below for the project but here is the one they selected. A description for each GIF was also generated as a part of the process. I created all 4 of these GIFs in one immediate work session. Overall, I wanted the pieces to be fun, yet over stimulating.
“A metaphoric and symbolic lucky rabbits foot ritually rains on endlessly, by watching this GIF, if one can commit to viewing it for 6 hours per day, every day, I can promise you that your luck will improve…… or so we are led to believe with such talisman like objects. If one is willing to put their faith into a placebo, perhaps we do have the power to alter our luck with self induced rituals as such noted above. “
The word LUCK has been reorganized to form an alternative letter formation than what one is used to seeing, this is a metaphor in and of itself that change can be as simple as re-organizing things. Sopmetimes it is on purpose, and sometimes it is by chance and or a stroke of luck. The horseshoes are also a metaphor and symbolic for luck, but in this case, we se many many horseshoes over flowing and abundant, showing us that our luck can also change in abundance. The flashing monochromatic values of green connect to the cultural impacts the color Green represents for luck. Each value represents another layer of luck.
Be sure to check out the whole project as it is super creative and inspiring!
