9 Squares

9 Squares is a project by Al Boardman, Skip Dolphin Hursh, and David Stanfield. The concept is simple 9 artists are given a pallet of 4 colours to create a 3 sec gif loop separately, the nine squares are then brought together into just one gif.

In general the process turns out great results thanks to the restricted colour pallet. I’ve been following since soon after the conception and, although the idea has limited potential for variation, I’m continually impressed.

It’s interesting to consider that each segment was created independently and it’s only through the curation of Boardman et.al. that the images become a colaboration.
