CollectiveGif: Information Overflow is a multi-screen evening of new media and performances, curated by killer banshee: Eliot Daughtry and Kriss de Jong. With Zon Wakest, Dean Putney, Anthony Discenza, Travis Meinhof and Phil Bonner
AnimatedGIFs embody the short attention span; they are gestural images pulling you into meditative focus and distracting you at the same time. Native to the Internet, the GIF is a vernacular form, easily dismissed. Glitchy, contrary, paradoxical in their position, animated GIFs take things out of normal time and place.
CollectiveGif: Information Overflow will present thousands of gifs - momentary gesticulations collected from the wilds of the Internet and created by artists including: Zon Wakest, Dean Putney, Anthony Discenza, Travis Meinholf, Phil Bonner.
CollectiveGif: Information Overflow is presented as part of A.D.D.: a show of artwork in multiple genres with five events. Exhibition Dates: Saturday October 20th - Sunday November 18th, 2012 A.D.D. is curated by MicroClimate Collective: Glenna Cole Allee and Victoria Mara Heilweil for more information please see: www.microclimatecollective.com
Support for MicroClimate’s 2012 exhibitions is provided by Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure Grant Program
