This is a small project I have put together for the Widget Art Gallery, combining lenticular display methods and the animated gif:
This is an experimental project that examines the aesthetics of lenticularization and extends the creative possibilities of the GIF format.
Lenticularization of an image allows the viewer to be presented with additional visual information within the same space, dependent on angle. Striped of lenticular sheets, we see that information altogether, almost theoretically identical to the Cubist idea of relativity presented as one. This project aims to appreciate the encrypted information as it is as well as decoded with additional media. Also, it aims to highlight and hopefully inspire the idea that there is more that can be done with the GIF medium - new tricks and methods can be applied to animation making, whether it is ‘flipping’ from one image to another, or added depth … Gif making can have additional visual narratives.
Below is a video demonstrating how the GIFs can be seen through a lenticular sheet (including an additional piece which will appear later on):

What happens when you pour 1200F molten aluminum into an anthill? (by seidbords32)
I have to say my immediate response was to feel bad for the ants even though I have killed every one I ever found in my home.
It just seemed especially unfair to wipe out an entire colony all at once. but then I remembered E.O. Wilson’s remark that “If ants had nuclear weapons, they would probably end the world in a week” and thought ok, fuck it, pour some molten aluminum in there and let’s see what’s going on.
What’s going on is quite amazing. You can skip forward quite a bit if you’re so inclined: it’s worth it.
