Olia Lialina’s Summer, the most fragile GIF on the WWW
Today I encounter the works of Oliana Lialina, in particular her work from 2013 Summer: A gif file wich every frame is hosted by a diferent person. Watching it was something unique, it reminded me how many things can only live not just in a digital form inside a computer but only on the internet, trough the conectivity of all of us (it also made me think on how something like this would be just imposibile inside the sterile walls of Facebook, Google or any of the giants that lives inside today’s internet)
Oliana also runs the Tumblr page One Terabyte of Kilobyte Age who post 1 snapshot every 20 minutes from the 1TB archive from Geocities (I hope one day I can find my own old Geocities page that was lost in time!)
I recomend everyone to check out her Website!
P.S.: Inspired by her work I also became an animated gif:
