GIF of the Day: Sahlooter

This GIF from Giphy auteur Sahlooter kinda creeps me out. It feels squishy like internal organs or hot dogs, but looks like a mother holding a baby. Are we all just flesh tubes of meat? Basically.

As a blog that features a lot of GIFs, it goes without saying that we appreciate RuPaul's Drag Race, arguably the most GIF-able thing on television (basically, contouring reduces human flesh to 250 colors or less, expressions are over-sized,...Show More Summary

We Went to Frieze, Part Two: Pussy Hat Show Flops, Anti-War Hard On Holds Up

3 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

Lots of lively inventive work and short on the kind of soulless work in a frame that can make these events so tedious. Today we take a deep dive into a lot of the art we saw. Let's get down to the nitty gritty.

NSFW GIF of the Hump Day: Virtual Reality Sex

3 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

Thank God for anime. Basically so much of it has been made and diligently translated to GIF form that you can find hyper-specific animations of pretty much any term, like "virtual reality humping while laying in a lap with nipples jiggling" [see after the jump] or "man's face melts off schoolgirl crush" or "tentacle ______". Keep it weird, otakus.

New Strategies Emerge and Diverge For Surviving Art Fair Costs

3 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

3 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

GIF of the Day: Theo Jansen’s Strandbeest

3 weeks agoArts : Art Fag City

This is Theo Jansen's "Strandbeest", a walking house/crab contraption that looks like it was designed for the context of scaring-the-shit out of people on acid at Burning Man. I don't know how this thing works, but if you're lucky enough to be in Mexico City on May 13th, you can catch the opening of Jansen's Asombrosas Criaturas at Laboratorio Arte Alameda.
