Experimental Mobile GIF Making.
Thanks to my friend and CUNY teaching colleague Michael Branson Smith further GIF experimentation on the run has taken place. On the run meaning; being mobile, in transit and creating via my Iphone. Michael has been a consistent force in bringing these new apps and platforms to my awareness. They fuel my desires to create more new media based art. This week I took Michael’s recommendations into the field and experimented with two new apps and platforms for generating and manipulating GIF animations. I also introduced the apps to my New Media class at LIU Post. Check out some of the great work the students have done this semester: ART642 – The course introduces techniques and lends a platform for experimentation.
