.gif Workshop w/ Alfredo Salazar-Caro

In the past two decades, many artists have adopted the internet as a medium of expression. Amongst the many tendrils of the internet, animated gifs seem to be a favorite among artists. With the charm of cinema or kinetic sculpture, less than the brevity of a youtube video and the happy, throw-away feeling of a .jpeg, the animated .gif is truyly a well-balanced medium for expression.

However, much mystery still shrouds this seemingly new outlet for artists.

In this brief workshop, Alfredo Salazar-Caro – a Chicago based multimedia artist and part of Chicago’s “Dirty New Media” scene – will offer a brief history of the .gif as well as various techniques to create and propagate this fresh format or art.

This workshop will take place on Wednesday, January 16th at 6:30PM. If you would like to participate and utilize the instructions in real-time, please bring a laptop with Photoshop (CS4 or higher) installed.
