Celebrating 25 years of the GIF with Whte Bkgrnd
There’s no equation or theorem that can explain the monochromatic GIFs from Whte Bkgrnd. This mysterious Tumblr tag editor’s animations are geometric eye candy that would make any mathematician blush.
“I can’t think of anything else that has done as much for me, both good and bad, than GIFs. From meeting people by being able to make animated avatars and signatures for forums, to basically getting me my current residence, the format has ended up shaping my life the past four years.
“I really don’t think the format is going anywhere; it’s too ingrained in Internet culture. When you give someone the ability to deck out their corner of the Web, who doesn’t want to fill it up with greatest moving pictures you can find?”
