Just like Andy Warhol interpreted and celebrated the iconic Perrier bottle in his unique style, we thought it would be interesting to see how modern artists would interpret and celebrate Warhol and his work using a uniquely modern technique: the animated GIF.
Warhol was known to share his fascination with technology and was an early adopter of computers for creativity so I'm fairly sure he would have been an advocate of the animated GIF. His fondness for repetition could also serve as evidence for this hypothesis.
With that in mind we asked some of today's most talented GIF artists to pay tribute to Warhol on their chosen format. Here they present a personal representation of what Warhol, his art and his legacy means to them personally.

////////////////////////// ////About the Exhibition :::
The Axis of Something
through July 13th, 2013
Lorna Mill’s solo exhibition at TRANSFER features a new body of work that beguiles with surface and color. Her recent series of digital prints – glazed and neatly tiled into large-scale compositions – has grown to epic proportions for this show. In ‘The Axis of Something’ Lorna pairs her prints with a selection of GIFs, creating an animated experience of sublime beauty not to be missed.
////////////////////////// /////About the Artist :::
Canadian artist, LORNA MILLS has actively exhibited her work in both solo and group exhibitions since the early 1990's, both in Canada and Internationally. Her practice has included obsessive Ilfochrome printing, obsessive painting, obsessive super 8 film & video, and obsessive on-line animated GIFs incorporated into restrained off-line installation work.
She has also co-curated monthly group animated GIF projections with Rea McNamara for the “Sheroes” performance series in Toronto, a group GIF projection event “When Analog Was Periodical” in Berlin co-curated with Anthony Antonellis, and a touring four person GIF installation, “:::Zip The Bright:::” that originated at Trinity Square Video in Toronto, with artists Sara Ludy, Nicolas Sassoon and Rick Silva.
