Flotsam GIF Shop, 2012

Flotsam GIF Shop was a project that took place between July 4 and July 20th 2012 with the support of Faucet Media Arts Centre and Struts Artist Run Centre in Sackville, New Brunswick.

For two weeks, Flotsam GIF Shop was open to the public holding regular hours. Visitors could browse a display of found sea flotsam and man-made detritus from nearby shores of the Bay of Fundy and Northumberland Strait. Willing participants could touch and move the material, and produce animated GIF's. The result was collection of moving images ranging in complexity and character. Their display in the gallery is echoed in an online archive:
