Bringing magic to simple, no-nonsense images.

Here at the Daily Dot, we swap GIF images with each other every morning. Now we’re looping you in. In the Morning GIF, we feature a popular—or just plain cool—GIF we found on Reddit, Canvas, or elsewhere on the Internet.

It may be a Bad Blueprint, but it’s a pretty amazing GIF.

Tumblr Bad Blueprint takes scenes of industrial mundanity and livens them up with digital magic, expressing the contrast between banal reality and the world of the imagination. Artist Alec Mackenzie is fascinated by the most functional, most no-nonsense images. This image of a painter applying dynamic ink is perhaps the apotheosis of his thesis that the possibility of magic is latent in the mundane; 389 Tumblr users agree.

The animated history of the GIF
The story of the GIF itself is one of tech lore.      The GIF, or graphics interchange format, was introduced to the world by Compuserve in 1987. The compressed format was the ideal for performing image transfers across the slow modem connections of the time. The format also allowed for color, replacing the black-and-white run-length encoding format (RLE).
