We’ll gather, network, share ideas and new tools in and around the Internet Archive, 300 Funston Avenue, San Francisco. Located in a former church, this temple of knowledge now houses petabytes of data.
Premiere Party: GIFCollider
Stick around Friday, as we travel to the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive for the wrap party! Ever wonder what happened to all the GIF animations that sparkled in the dawn of the internet? According to artists Greg Niemeyer and Olya Dubatova, they have become part of the digital subconscious. BAMPFA invites you to ponder these questions as thousands of gif animations will emerge and collide on the public outdoor screen, in a ballet of memory and erasure. Call it an outstallation, a special showcase with music made for the GIFcollider by Paz Lenchantin (Pixies) and with live music performances by Trevor Bajus and Space Town. Friday, Oct 28, from 6-8 pm.
