GIFAANISQATSI: GIFs Out of Balance

via The Verge

Koyaanisqatsi is a film that is impossible to forget, despite having absolutely no plot.

The 1982 film is an hour-long montage of scenes from around the world that was directed by Godfrey Reggio, but is perhaps best known for its soundtrack, which was scored by the composer Philip Glass. Koyaanisqatsi derives its title from a Hopi word meaning “life out of balance” and its shot selection ranges over everything from nature time lapses to the inner workings of a hotdog factory.

In a 21st century twist on this classic work of experimental cinema, the artist Rico Monkeon has created a Koyaanisqatsi generator that sources its imagery from randomly selected GIFs. The premise of Monkeon’s “GIFAANISQATSI” is simple enough: GIFs tagged with “slow motion” or “time-lapse” are pulled from Giphy’s repository and looped over a two-minute selection from Koyaanisqatsi’s soundtrack that is used in the film’s trailer.
