The Animated GIF SPEED SHOW – The Aftermath

So it’s been 24 hours since today and tomorrow’s 5th birthday SPEED SHOW: animated GIFs.
It’s time to thank the 18 animated GIF artists! But of course also everyone who showed up at the event. I hope you all liked it.
I guess some of you would have been there if they were in Berlin last night. Your support is very much appreciated!
There wouldn’t have been a SPEED SHOW if F.A.T. Lab and Aram Bartholl didn’t came up with this format.
A big thank you to everyone!
