WITH THE HEAT DEATH OF THE INTERNET SOON UPON US,
archival practices need to be updated and employed to better serve future historians and bored teenagers.

A personal passion of mine has always been the GIF as both art form and entertainment.

As this famous philosopher said:
"The archive: if we want to know what this [GIF] will have meant, we will only
know tomorrow."
--Jacques Derrida, "Mal d'Archive: Une Internet Freudienne."

I want to preserve these GIFs for all time, not just internet time, and have therefore printed them onto film for safe storage.
You can now view these printed examples all together as one digital video, uploaded into the internet here for your use.

GIFs printed onto 16mm film with a color laser printer digitized with a crappy telecine

Each GIF cataloged with the relevant, ever fleeting, Imgur ID
