Blitter Bike / Faesthetic – OPEN CALL for animated gifs

Over the past weekend, I had the absolute thrill and privilege to experience the Blitter Bike. It’s a one of a kind creation, by my good friend Branden Hall, and it’s made to blow minds.

The long and short of it is, as the user drives the Blitter Bike, an animated gif runs behind them. It speeds up and slows down, based on the speed of the biking. It’s intended use is for Burning Man, and “regional burns”… which if you’re unfamiliar I suggest you do a little googling.

Here is where YOU come in! The Blitter Bike needs more animated gifs. Like… a lot more. And I think it would be absofuckinglutely amazing, if during it’s maiden voyage, the bike showcased Faesthetic readers and artists.

All of the info for what Branden needs, can be found here: http://blitterbike.tumblr.com/post/26074228423/give-the-gift-of-gifs

Head on over, and get involved! This is an amazing project, created by an amazing man. Add your own amazement to the cause with an amazing animated gif. 🙂 We’ll do our best to archive the gifs and project for future posterity.
