Animated GIFs of Francoise Gamma: elegant, sexy, graceful and tortured
June 21, 2013 11:45 AM   Subscribe

Francoise Gamma makes bizarre, convoluted, abstract GIFs, and is a generally mysterious individual. Gamma provided answers to a visual interview, and you can get a quick overview of Gamma's animation from The Creators Project. Gamma also created works in the physical realm, first as part of a group guerrilla art installation project, then etched into a transparent material by "harnessing the power of rare crystals and secret lasers".

Gamma has a second site, Videogramo on 8bitpeoples.

Side note: Gamma dedicated this animation to Alexandra Gorczynski and her Hologram City." (possibly NSFW)

I think we've killed it already.

Nah, those glitches are intentional.

The site was loading slowly for me last night. I think loading a bunch of animated GIFs at once still stresses out browsers, no mater how fancy.

The Gorczynski GIF is all kinds of awesome.

It looks even better when you view it full-size, which might be an issue with other pages of GIFs, too. If they're scaled down, they look more off than they should.

I first saw this image, and had to know more. There's the obvious glitchiness to the images, but there's also the smoothness of motion that is appealing.
