GIFs don’t always have to be memes.

Categorised as ART., PHOTOGRAPHY.

While GIFs of animals doing hil-a-rious stuff or people ‘failing’ (worst internet word to make it in to everyday speech, ever) can be kind of amusing for ten minutes, after about 200 mini animations you might want a slight change of pace, otherwise the ‘randomness’ can get a bit Family Guy, i.e formulaic and not really funny anymore.

Josh Greet, a photographer based in Plymouth, has combined photography and a staple of the internet meme to create these 3D gifs. He says, “I constantly try to push the boundaries of photography by combining other media such as performance, installation, moving image and 3D imagery. Everything I do seems to be bodged – I have a great interest in making use of the materials around me and being self-sufficient.” Unfortunately these pieces wouldn’t translate that well in to print, unless you have one of those flip books, so Josh is working on getting his 3D photography printed on holograms, “like the ones you used to get in cereal boxes.”
