As part of the exhibition: Born in 1987: The Animated GIF we are inviting the public to respond to their show by creating and submitting their own GIFs.
Because all GIFs featured on The Wall will be visible to both visitors to the building plus all passersby on Ramillies St through glass windows, your submissions will have to meet some editorial guidelines. For example, we won’t be able to exhibit GIFs on The Wall which are not suitable for a general audience, or GIFs which may have rapid flashing or changes in luminosity which may have a negative impact on members of the public with photosensitive epilepsy. As a guideline, no more than 3 rapid changes to the image per second should appear.
To submit your work, you will need to create a Tumblr Account, and upload your GIF. For us to discover it, you will need to TAG your gif with #bornin1987. Please note that Tumblr has a size restriction of 500px wide and under 1MB in size. We will start reblogging the public submissions and uploading them to The Wall from 18th June - 7th July. We will accept submissions until the 7th July.
