Nazis vs. Commies

 

Recently, Reddit launched a collaborative art project called Place. Redditors were invited to pick a pixel once every five minutes to form an image with friends and allies.

In just 72 hours, over a million Redditors placed 16.5 million tiles to transform a simple, white, 1000×1000-pixel canvas into a surprisingly beautiful clash of communities, nations, ideologies, and fandoms.

Some succeeded in creating a giant Nazi flag, only to be usurped by a collective of Communists and Anarchists.

Memorial Day 2017

 

I hope our American readers had a very good and rested Memorial Day weekend. Regardless of where you are from, always honour those who gave their lives for your country/freedom.

A promotional GIF banner from the Tasnim News Agency of Iran, showcasing their coverage of that nation’s presidential elections next week. The GIF features the Iranian national flag fluttering in the wind, and a ticker tape featuring the agency’s URL. I stumbled across this work of art while collecting articles for tweeting in one of my roles as a social media manager.

French presidential elections 2017

 

It is the last voting stage of the French presidential elections this weekend, and while both Marine Le Pen and Emmanuel Macron have their controversies, the residents of La France should be grateful that Monsieur Homer Le Simpson isn’t running for the hot seat.

Postcard from Izmir

 

A GIF I made using a scene of the beach in Izmir, a sought-after resort in Anatolian Turkey. I used effects pre-loaded by Blingee. The image is evocative of a holiday postcard between lovers. Background image is of the İzmir Saat Kulesi, a clock tower.

My India trip

 

I made this attractive GIF shortly after I got back from my holiday in India. It celebrates different aspects of the country.

मैं इस आकर्षक GIF कुछ ही समय बाद मैं भारत में मेरी छुट्टी से वापस मिल गया बनाया है। यह देश के विभिन्न पहलुओं को मनाता है।
