I’ve always been interested in the idea of artistic ‘interruptions’ or disruptions but not really found the right framework to explore this within my own work. However, I’ve recently been able to access an archive of about 60 years worth of Vogue magazine and I’m determined to find some way to work with it (there are limitations, I can’t remove any of it, and proper copying is a problem).
This is my first attempt – a rough and ready gif – made from low res iPad images of all the legs in the March 1964 issue of French Vogue. I’m not sure yet if I’m going to continue this approach -or, how I’m interrupting or disrupting the archive, but this article on digital disruptions and gifs is giving me some food for thought…
