The Vintage Animated GIFs of Bill Domonkos

Imagine one of those 20th century hunting paintings, but instead of the hunter aiming at a duck, he is pointing his rifle at a UPS box floating in the air. That’s a surreal and strange scenario, but perfectly in line with the mind-set of Bill Domonkos who manipulates archive film footage and photos and adds special effects to them. His animated GIFs are fascinating loops, and his movies are equally experimental and have been displayed in galleries and film festivals.
