About a week ago gif
Y edp gif
I borrowed an old Samsung tablet from family about a week ago and have been drawing with it and a lousy stylus. I’ve decided on ibisPaint, which is a fantastic program. I’m gradually gaining the ability to create legitimate art, though I must confess that the pace and flow of my work is much slower and clumsier. I’m even more tired after drawing on CSP than I am after drawing on CSP.: QUNDERGROUNDWUBWUBMA

The AND (Abandon Normal Devices) Festival is an annual summer festival that takes place in a number of cities throughout the United Kingdom. They regularly commission new work from artists, and this year they asked me to create a series of ten animated gifs for their blog. Week by week, they were released under the banner of Happy Mondays.
I attended the Rojo Nova Festival in Rio a few weeks ago. We collaborated on a 60-minute live performance with a group of artists and musicians. One of the team’s artists, Rosa Menkman, decided to make some glitch interpretations of my work. She’s fascinated by file formats and how they look. Rosa’s full study can be read and viewed here.

“About a Week Ago” is a lyric from American rapper Bobby Shmurda’s 2014 hip hop hit “Hot Nigga.” It’s linked to a series of dance videos on Vine in which people quote the phrase when performing Shmurda’s signature dance, the “Shmoney.”
Shmurda’s lead single “Hot Nigga” from his debut EP album Shmurda She Wrote was released on July 25th, 2014. (shown below, left). Viner DontéMacc posted a video on the same day in which he does the “Schmoney dance” as “Hot Nigga” plays in the background (shown below, right).
Axel Blake, a YouTuber, posted a video titled “About a week ago – Shmoney Dance” on August 3rd, 2014, which features brief skits in which he starts dancing when someone says the phrase “about a week ago” in conversation (shown below). The video received over 920,000 views and 300 comments in the first five months.
Lozersayswhat posted a video titled “About a Week Ago” on September 8th, featuring a montage of clips in which he is confronted by his younger brother, who frequently performs the Schmoney dance while saying “about a week ago” (shown below, left). In only three months, the Vine Trends Compilations YouTube channel uploaded a collection of “About a Week Ago” Vines, which has received over 1.9 million views and 860 comments (shown below, right).

When the much higher-resolution PNG format with its own transparency capabilities was introduced, gifs were almost abandoned. With so many super compressed video formats available, why would anyone want to use a gif anymore? They have managed to survive and are now more successful than ever…
But now it’s just a matter of file size. GIFs have often been a file size problem because they are simply a sequence of 256 color images (frames) captured into one image file with a few properties to control the animation speed and whether it loops or not. The gif above has 12 frames and a file size of 800KB (0.8MB) – when you open it in Photoshop, it’s set to shift every 0.1 of a second and then loop indefinitely – see below:
The file’s size is usually determined by the number of frames and the image’s pixel size. The image below has a similar physical pixel size as the image above, but it includes 157 frames, resulting in a file size of 11MB; the only way to reduce the file size is to reduce the image size or chop out some of the frames, which would make it more jerky but achieve the same effect.
