We had so much fun at this year's Blip Festival we had to add an extra dimension. At some point during the exhilarating maelstrom of chiptune music, visual art and delicious Sixpoint craft beer, we ran into Jimmy from Mister GIF, who was using his fancy 3D camera to capture the festivities with stereoscopic flair.
MoBo photographer Emi Spicer snatched it for a spell and took it for a whirl during Bit Shifter's set and Motherboard's Blip after-party, which went down at DIY arcade Babycastles in their new location on Kent Ave in Williamsburg. There was analog typewriter tweeting, live music from chiptune greats Animal Style, Derris Kharlan and Note! and a game about a YouTube video of two farmers firing guns from an RV to celebrate Osama bin Laden's death. Needless to say, it was pretty rad.
Check below for our shots from the festival and after-party in trippy vibrating stereo, and see more of Mr. GIF's eye-popping wigglegraphs on MTV Geek.
