It’s been a while since I’ve posted some animated GIF’s, but these ones by Yoshi Sodeoka are … psychedelic. I was actually surprised that I didn’t post anything else from his portfolio before. It’s packed with visual stimuli.
Here’re my 3 favorites from his GIF Psychedelica series.

Binary’s Forth Fugue is series of animated gifs made by JK Keller. He used a set of arrow icons designed by Yusuke Kamiyamane, to create animations similar to L-system growth models. The directional path of the arrow attempts to find a forward progression in mounting uncertainty & indecisiveness, eventually bowing to the emergent cacophony of the powers of 2. Mesmerizing work!

</frameset> is an exhibition, a monument and an archive dedicated to the HTML tag <frameset>, setup by some students from the Interface Design department at the Merz Akademie in Stuttgart, Germany.
The HTML tag was introduced in 1996 with version 2.0 of Netscape browser. This tag made it possible to divide a browser window into parts and show several HTML documents at once.
A lot has been written about this most controversial tag in the history of markup languages. Already in the year it was created, usability experts announced that it breaks fundamental rules of hypertext and navigation. It was hated in the end of the 1990′s and neglected in the new millennium.
In March 2011 W3C finally removed frames from the HTML5 standard.
</frameset> is a collection of 5205 framesets from Geocities, 100 “No Frames!” buttons and some experiments by the students like the ones below. Check them out!

GIF MARKET is a new project by Kim Asendorf and Ole Fach. The animated GIF is probably the most popular net.art file format at the moment and it’s only a matter of time till some animated GIFs will end up in art collections.
The GIF MARKET is located on the way to future. It’s not on the destination, much more shortly after the start, but it’s one of the pioneer projects for giving files a value.
The project contains a series of 1024 animated GIFs, each named by a #number. The GIFs show a black line which marks the centre for the 1px large particles rotating around it. #1 is the most unique, it has only 1 pixel flying around, and therefore the most expensive. Down to the end there are so many particles that you can’t see the difference between #950 and #1000.
The price gets calculated by this formula:
PRICE = (SALES / NUMBER) * 16
Each sale increases the price, at the end the #1 will cost 16,384.00€.
BTW, I bought #23 last Saturday at a very low price. It was an excellent investment!
I just love Nicolas Sassoon his animated gif style. The rotating 3D objects with their pattern shading … truly nice. His created “Island Study” for a benefit compilation for Japan.
The basic idea of this exhibition format is to create a gallery like opening situation for browser based internet art in a public cyber-cafe / internet-shop for one night. The exhibition format is free and can be applied by anyone at any place.
The titel of this years SPEED SHOW is “YOUR BROWSER IS MY KINGDOM”. There won’t be just animated gifs, but all kinds of different browser artworks.
