GIF Experiments: 16 (Take a Photograph of What You Love)
by Steven McCabe
I divided 190 images (manipulated in Photoshop) used in these three GIFS into three groups – arbitrarily. Many were repetitive and yet many unique. I sought to give each GIF its own visual rhythm. Then I added a phrase to the third GIF: Take a photograph of what you love.
I reworked and juxtaposed two medieval paintings, a photograph of Jacqueline Kennedy in Dallas, and a photograph of Serge Gainsbourg & Jane Birkin.
Stunning work, Steve!
“I can’t shake Dallas and I can’t shake Eden and what has disappeared in other ways.”
Hard to shake what haunts us.
Thank you Elana! Yes so very true.
A superb series, Steven. Wonder how placing them horizontally would look – I have to scroll my screen up & down to see all three, and their differences, interconnections, repetitions and echoes. Nine of them in a cube, with white borders, would be mind blowing.
I’d love to do that 9 in a square. Excellent idea Brenda. Thank you. Now to figure out the ‘Block editor’ and all its curses and double whammys!
