Snippets and Vignettes: Gritty, Nostalgic .GIFs by Mark Vomit

2014-07-01

Kids of the ’80s and ’90s, be prepared to be swept by a wave of nostalgia through these .gif creations by artist Mark Vomit.

While the world wide web is abundant with all sorts of .gifs, both original and sampled from other forms of media, these ones by artist and musician *Mark Vomit* is most certainly not your run-of-the-mill creations. Most of the images presented were taken from 1980s and 1990s pop culture, with the treatment given to the final output actually reminiscent of computer and television glitches. Although made through digital means, the .gifs still have that undoubtedly analogue feel to them.

If you happen to be in Minneapolis, Minnesota between June 28 to August 10, you might want to swing by the Post Physical | Visual Reactions to the Post-Internet Age exhibit at the SooLocal to see Vomit’s .gif works yourself.
