A video splattered with three years worth of daily animated gifs. A new layer is added onto this video every time it is exhibited.

AGOD (Acronym for animated gif of the day) is an organic video about the terror of entropy. The inevitable entropy of the aging mind parallels the entropy of the accelerating universe and the speed of information in the digital age. A layer is added onto this video every day. In that sense, you could say that it is an organic video, because it has no solid finished state.
