  2. As GIF creators - OKKULT Motion Pictures is our brainchild - we know it's very easy to show/share an animated GIF on the web, but it's hard to find an offline GIF player to exhibit and sell a GIF as a single, unique artwork.

    We have conceived, designed and handcrafted the Giphoscope with the objective of proposing to artists/galleries/

    museums/collectors a minimalistic, unconventional, retrofuturistic analog GIF player, entirely tailor made andhandmade in ItalyThanks to Giphoscope, animated GIF becomes a tangible and exclusive artwork.


    The Giphoscope is inspired by the Mutoscope, an early motion picture device, patented by Herman Casler on November 21, 1894.

    The Mutoscope worked on the same principle as the "flip book". The individual image frames were conventional black-and-white, silver-based photographic prints on tough, flexible opaque cards. Rather than being bound into a booklet, the cards were attached to a circular core. A reel typically held about 850 cards, giving a viewing time of about a minute (from Wikipedia).

  4. Pieterjan Grandry succeeded to build a device capable of playing animated gifs, incorporating led lights, microchips and magnetic sensors. The Gif player is a wooden box, much like a turntable, with a dimmer to adjust the speed of the animation and a small looking hole in the front.

  5. One of our most innovative, popular thinkers takes on-in exhilarating style-one of our key questions: Where do good ideas come from?

    With Where Good Ideas Come From, Steven Johnson pairs the insight of his bestselling Everything Bad Is Good for You and the dazzling erudition of The Ghost Map and The Invention of Air to address an urgent and universal question: What sparks the flash of brilliance? How does groundbreaking innovation happen? Answering in his infectious, culturally omnivorous style, using his fluency in fields from neurobiology to popular culture, Johnson provides the complete, exciting, and encouraging story of how we generate the ideas that push our careers, our lives, our society, and our culture forward.

    Beginning with Charles Darwin's first encounter with the teeming ecosystem of the coral reef and drawing connections to the intellectual hyperproductivity of modern megacities and to the instant success of YouTube, Johnson shows us that the question we need to ask is, What kind of environment fosters the development of good ideas? His answers are never less than revelatory, convincing, and inspiring as Johnson identifies the seven key principles to the genesis of such ideas, and traces them across time and disciplines.

    Most exhilarating is Johnson's conclusion that with today's tools and environment, radical innovation is extraordinarily accessible to those who know how to cultivate it. Where Good Ideas Come From is essential reading for anyone who wants to know how to come up with tomorrow's great idea

  6. Gifsicle is a command-line tool for creating, editing, and getting information about GIF images and animations. Making a GIF animation with gifsicle is easy:

    gifsicle --delay=10 --loop *.gif > anim.gif

    Extracting framesfrom animations is easy too:

    gifsicle anim.gif '#0' > firstframe.gif

    You can also editanimations by replacing, deleting, or inserting frames:

    gifsicle -b anim.gif --replace '#0' new.gif

    Some more gifsicle features:

    • Batch mode for changing GIFs in place.
    • Prints detailed information about GIFs, including comments.
    • Control over interlacing, comments, looping, transparency...
    • Creates well-behaved GIFs: removes redundant colors, only uses local color tables if it absolutely has to (local color tables waste space and can cause viewing artifacts), etc.
    • It can shrink colormaps and change images to use the Web-safe palette (or any colormap you choose).
    • Optimize your animations! This stores only the changed portion of each frame, and can radically shrink your GIFs. You can also use transparency to make them even smaller. Gifsicle’s optimizer is pretty powerful, and usually reduces animations to within a couple bytes of the best commercial optimizers.
    • Unoptimizing animations, which makes them easier to edit.
    • A dumb name.

    Two other programs are included with gifsicle: gifview is a lightweight animated-GIF viewer which can show animations as slideshows or in real time, and gifdiff compares two GIFs for identical visual appearance.

  8. Retouches features a series of repeated visual cycles, an animation painted on celluloid that examines transformation in the world around us.

    As with 78 tours and Jeu, Georges Schwizgebel tries to grasp the ungraspable -- movement itself -- by playing with notions of perception and representation, changing the balance of shapes for amazing metamorphoses. He turns someone going upstairs into a hurdler and hair being brushed into a windswept forest; as for a tennis game, the ball remains motionless and the court whirls spectacularly around it.

    Finally the film calms down into an image of a sleeping woman perhaps dreaming of the very images we ourselves have just observed. Retouches is the virtuoso dream of a visual acrobat.
