Unsatisfying GIFs

The design studio, Parallel, challenged the rise of “satisfying” artwork by creating a series of unsatisfying GIFs. The project highlights the minor (but annoying nevertheless) moments that we experience on a daily basis, spanning from a soda can not falling to a spoon falling into a bowl of soup. The work was very interesting to me because there can be such a strong focus on art needing to be “perfect”. “UNSATISFYING” tailors to the imperfections that exist in real life, bringing a refreshing look to art. I was also incredibly impressed with how smooth the GIFs were, especially having gone over how to make them last class. https://www.thisiscolossal.com/2017/05/unsatisfying-gifs-that-transform-frustrating-irl-moments-into-digital-animations/
