Walking, walking: an homage to E. Muybridge.
The image in motion.
The micro moments, maybe and at first, are all. Your interaction with your apps is made as well, of micro sessions held along the day. and that, that is another perception of the image. Your app is made from micro-moment, a chain of questions for you to answer with a swap, a click, a slide. Metaphorically, the "frame" is also a mental space related to the science of knowledge. The frame, under many names, is in vogue now. Nowadays this kind of image is more present than ever, thank to the GIF format that allow looped images to be sent via mobile applications (short looping videos also make the trick).
But also because the devices that we use everyday have that kind of sequence, the same animations of elements activated now and then in a rather static image, which is the interface itself. Within a static context, a lengthy evolution.
Some of the art we make in the future will appear maybe from this elements. A moment, frozen. Such is the nature of the looping GIF, made of pure movement but trapped in the repetition, like a captured piece of time in the hands of the image, a cage of light,shape and color, and a fleeting meaning. A moment detained in time, frozen, for eternal consumption and contemplation, a mental space for visual poetry. A new symphony, a sequence, a narrative, no explicit, a musical approach to stories, ethereal, vague, non direct, so non linear tales or narratives. Maybe a new door to express ourselves in the new times.
