I found this assignment to bring some difficulties, I couldn’t figure out exactly what I wanted to do because after the readings I didn’t view the GIF as a fine art form. So I wanted to try and make fine art into a GIF but the “Cremaster Cycle” by Matthew Barney was too hard to make into smaller pieces to make a gif, with that being said I had a hard time figuring out the theme. It was until I stumbled through youtube to find all of the Vines people have been making and to my surprise there were some very humorous and quite skillful vines that people have made. My GIF project then turned into showcasing that people can make great creations whether to humor you or entertain in very amateur ways and that’s okay to make art without it being professional. So enjoy the things that humor and enlighten my world when only taken on a phone.
Even by itself, the Armory Show is overwhelming. With the Armory Show’s booths extending to the vanishing point in both directions of Pier 94, it can leave an unsettling impression of endlessness, where everything starts to look the same.
