Headlines screamed "GIPHY'S LOOP DREAMS EXHIBIT IS THE INTERNET IN PHYSICAL FORM" or "GIFS IRL WILL MAKE ALL YOUR MEMES COME TRUE". Lots of things were said, capital used, and gifs created. Dark Igloo / Giphy reached out to me to shoot photos and videos of both the private party and public launch of Loop Dreams, the world's first gif gallery in SoHo at 201 Mulberry featuring installations by 25 of Giphy's artists. Gif curation by Giphy, event branding and design by the homies at Dark Igloo.
Showing just gifs.
Here lies everything not deserving of its own post, a whole mishmash of of looping things. Bunch of weird shit, honestly.
For three months in the Spring of 2015 I had a stay with the homies at Dark Igloo, & they were a few of the most outrageously cool months of my life. Dark Igloo, run by Dave Franzese & Mark Miller is a company that specializes. I joined the team as an Eskimo. During our hang I got to work on cool things for places like Giphy, Kong, & Converse while also helping create internal virtual realities of the future, with Self-E-Wear.
