1. "Julie ha detto a Faye che lei è convinta che due persone innamorate attraversino tre fasi distinte prima di arrivare a conoscersi davvero. All’inizio si raccontano aneddoti e gusti personali. Poi ciascuno dei due dice all’altro in che cosa crede. E poi ciascuno osserva la relazione che c’è fra quello in cui l’altro ha detto di credere e quello che in effetti fa."

    (via Remixing the Renaissance as GIFs)

    By now it’s become a familiar trope: Photoshop or GIF something historical, say, Old Masters or old photographs. But just because it’s been done doesn’t mean it’s finished. And the elaborate GIFs that James Kerr makes from early Northern Renaissance paintings are a hilariously new take on the idea of remixing antique art.
