Animated GIFs by Bill Domonkos
Fascinating animated GIFs using found vintage photographs and archival film footage to which he adds his own special effects to create a new experience.
I view my work as a collision and recombination of ideas. My process unfolds gradually and spontaneously—using found materials such as archive film footage, photographs, and the internet. I experiment by combining, altering, editing and reassembling using digital technology, special effects and animation to create a new kind of experience. I am interested in the poetics of time and space—to renew and transform materials, experiences and ideas. The extraordinary thing about cinema is its ability to suggest the ineffable—it is this elusive, dreamlike quality that informs my work.Bill Domonkos is a filmmaker, GIF maker and stereoscopist.
