GIF the Halls

GTH-mock-up-final

For the past few months, I’ve been working with the team at WP-Engine Labs on a huge public art project called GIF the Halls. The project asked 7 artists, including myself, to create short animated greeting card designs. Users can then go to GIFtheHalls.com to pick a design and add a message, then we will project their card in downtown San Francisco and send them a video/GIF of their card in action. It’s awesome, we basically are sending them a gif of a gif.

American Analog: Some Scenes From Market Street

Here’s a recent batch of expired Tri-X film (I need some fresh stuff) from a day spent walking along Market St in SF.

Zumi Week: Monochrome (High Res)

Digital Harinezumi (monochrome)

Not only does the camera seem a little less low-res in monocrhome mode, the pixelation actually gives it a kind of raw feel… like the high contrast and grains found on 3200 film.

American Analog: Apple Picking

Officer Barry

I happened to peek into one of those mobile command vehicles on Market St and noticed a Pac-Man image made out of magnets. I asked the officer inside about it and he said “Yeah, the last guy put that up. I don’t know, it’s kind of stupid.” We got talking about the command center, which is full of REALLY old gear, iPhone apps, and the increase in iPhone and Apple thefts in the last few weeks. He said it’s such an easy way to make quick cash that thieves have started calling it “Apple Picking”.
