About the work: SCRAP: Rayon is the latest set of animations in Lorna Mills’s ongoing SCRAP series. Based on scanned printed textiles, the images are distorted with Bezier curves, bending them with motions that mimic bodily rhythms. Intentionally pixelated and defined by a chunky digital aesthetic, these animations track their making with the visible nodes and anchors of the digital imaging tools plainly in sight.

Lorna Mills makes animated gifs with an emphasis on cacophony and rhythmic movement pushed to a variety of extremes. Ravingly formal but dissonant, her collage work sometimes skirts the boundaries of what the eye can passively handle before it actively seeks out patterns and resolution.

The piece presented at Moving Image is sold as a unique Animated GIF installation composed of seven android tablets (five ten-inch tablets, two thirteen-inch tablets) with looped moving image. Additional unique GIF compositions of various sizes, and individual GIFs within the series are also available for acquisition.
