GIF Experiments: 13 (Ghostly Spirit in the GIF, a Glitch… Reminding Me of My Brother)
by Steven McCabe
The ultimate glitch is mortality. Or maybe we discover the ultimate glitch after encountering finally the mortal moment. My late brother was a musician, and my speculative fiction in the previous post moving from mumbo jumbo about non-sequiturs and fictive art into King Solomon appropriating the camera used to record a Moody Blues concert film, reminded me of a music instruction book he wrote with some deliberately outlandish claims about music history.
I miss my difficult brother.
I must again thank the Canada Council for the Arts who funded my GIF project with the Digital Originals program. My project is finished now but the CC support was of great assistance and meaningful in developing a digital approach.
Remarkable work, Steven.
Don’t we always miss the difficult ones when they’re gone. The hard qualities shine through the ‘veil’.
Thank you Elana. Yes, true isn’t it. Good to hear from you.
