There are few things on the Internet more Internetty than GIFs (aka those never-ending loops of images that you stare at for minutes on end). With a respect for the format that goes beyond its ability to mesmerize, Jason Lazarus and Eric Fleischauer assembled 3,000 GIFs from all over the Internet into the feature-length film Twohundredfiftysixcolors
(named for the number of colors in the GIF palette). The movie premieres tonight. In other Lazarus news: the artist will conduct a workshop Sun 4/21 at 2 PM at the MCA (220 E. Chicago) in conjunction with his solo show there; participants will re-create "signs from media images of the Occupy Wall Street movement" and add them to Lazarus's archive.
