FIG is an ONLINE + OFFLINE exhibit celebrating the power of the GIF. It is a small part of a larger study on the evolving internet expressions of our age – freshly incubated at the Eyemyth Festival 2019.
Theme: The Loss of Creativity
All of us share a weird, endearing relationship with creativity. It is important to reflect on not just the peaks but also the troughs — the taxing moments that, if persevered through, open up a whole new landscape of creativity and personal satisfaction. This year's theme asks you to do just this, leveraging the power of the GIF. We want to focus on the 'loop' of a GIF, as it speaks to the essence of this cycle we speak of — of creativity, its fruition, loss, and rebirth.
This year at Eyemyth we want to use FIG to engage with all kinds of artists, thinkers and tinkerers. But but, there are some rules to follow, so please skim carefully!

GIFS, as we have come to understand them, are not determined by linguistic boundaries. They are coded by community, shared experience and (lo and behold!) popular culture. Shared, re-shared and referenced across various contexts they eventually become fused with everyday language.
Tip: Keep it simple, and use the loop!
