SINGAPORE — Now showing at the National Design Centre, GIFFEST III by EYEYAH! until August 26 brings together more than 80 animated Gifs by local and international Creatives in its third and latest edition. This year’s theme, “IMPERFECT,” highlights the beauty and value of imperfections by delving into diverse perspectives on perfectionism and its impact on society — particularly for an emerging generation navigating an increasingly digital landscape and AI-enabled world. GIFFEST III by EYEYAH! is supported by DesignSingapore Council.
Exhibition: Exploring the theme of “imperfect” from both the lens of design and as a social issue, the exhibition invites visitors to consider imperfection an essential aspect of human creativity and expression. The breadth of incredible digital artworks showcases the richness of GIFs as an artistic medium that merges the world of animation, graphic design, film, and photography, featured in cutting-edge, experiential, and interactive formats. These include a motion-activated installation that projects visitors as moving GIFs, an immersive large-scale LED projection and screening nook, and GIF clips on a retro portable DVD player.
Creatives: Curated from an open call on Instagram to #GIFFESTSG, the festival’s exceptional collection of GIFs features diverse work of both acclaimed image makers and emerging talents across 30 countries.
