15Folds is a digital art gallery founded in London in 2012.
Each month 15Folds chooses a theme (Confessions, for example) and makes a GIF that subject. 14 other artists and creatives are then invited to respond to the theme with their own GIFs. The resulting 15 works are published on the Tumblr-based platform every other day throughout the month, creating a monthly group show that examines a topic or idea through the lens of digital art.
Visitors to the site can also make their own animated GIF art with a custom-built drag-and-drop GIF maker. In 2014 the group staged their first show, Everything All At Once, an IRL GIF exhibition in London. The show used custom Augmented Reality to liberate GIFs from the browser and featured works from Bart Hess, Matthew Stone and Kim Asendorf. You can read more about it here and here. Recent projects have included partnerships with The Serpentine, Patternity & Absolut.
These are some images shot during hurricane Sandy using long exposure. The whole of the lower eastside was in total darkness apart from cabs, police cars and fire engines zipping around town. It’s impossible to try and get across the feeling and emotions that are going through my mind while running to a friends house during the storm in a bit of a panic! The luck of being in the right place at the right time.
