Portrait of a Dancing Baby Gif

Inspired by the mid-aughts “glitch” aesthetic as well as having a passion for early-internet memes, I created Portrait of a Dancing Baby Gif.

I used a corrupted gif of the Dancing Baby from Ally McBeal and some very simple CSS, and JS. The final effect is something I describe as “tough to look at but sublime to see”.

The page would eventually be used in an Artist’s Statement I did for COAHSI.
