GIF-T.TV: A Carnival Madhouse of Sorts

The world around us has become a frenzied kaleidoscope of images, sounds, commands, instructions, sales pitches, self promotion—a relentless realm of elevated energy in an array of psychedelic colors, shapes, and languages.

The Graphics Interchange Format—better known by its acronym GIF—is a bitmap-image format introduced by CompuServe in 1987. It has since become a popular format on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.

GIF-T.TV is the digital equivalent to a carnival madhouse. The vast library of GIFs are designed by Jay Peter Salvas. The rabbit hole will only continue to get deeper and deeper.
