an infinite mantra
always present in my life.
…”part of the magic in the mantra consists in that you should not question about its meaning, because only then shall we trascend the fragmentary aspects of the conscious mind and perceive the subyacent unity…”

What GIF best describes how you are currently feeling?
When did you first start making GIFs? What was your first GIF?
I joined tumblr and was posting digital collage stills assembled from random images in my feed. While making one in Photoshop I accidentally triggered the animation loop and the layers all started flashing up. It was jarring and hypnotic. I didn’t post it for a while, because it seemed so ridiculous! Then I just started mashing up anything and everything.
The ability to loop - movement, repetition. On tumblr, GIFs stand out from static content on your dash. They’re really fun to make.
Where do you pull inspiration from?
It could come from anywhere. For example, I love how the buses in London look so iconic and retro, then you step inside and there’s this dystopian robo-voice announcing the stops. That weird contrast inspires me. What next? Your recycling bin reporting you for putting plastic in the paper tray? Your fridge counting your calories?
