In Caughtinmoment Lorna Mills continues her explorations of the gif as an iconic visual form of the online environment by breaking down images of sunrises and sunsets into pixelated components that wriggle and twist in mechanical, jerky motions. The jagged edges of the looping forms position digital visuals between film and still image, capturing essential qualities of their abstraction and beauty. Caughtinmoment forever remains in suspension, seemingly expanding sunrises and sunsets into familiar photographic depictions and immediately contracting them to cut-outs that highlight the pixel as a building block of the digital image.

Lorna Mills has internationally exhibited her work in both solo and group exhibitions since the early 1990s. Her practice spans a variety of media ranging from print, painting, film and video, to online animated GIFs, which she also incorporates into installation work. Exhibitions include “Abrupt Diplomat,” Marshall McLuhan Salon, Transmediale, Berlin; “At Play in the Fields of the Lord,” Transfer Gallery, NYC; “DKRM,” DAM Gallery, Berlin; and “Dreamlands” at the Whitney Museum. Throughout March 2016, her work “Mountain Time/Light” was displayed every night on 45 jumbo monitors in Times Square, NYC, as part of the Midnight Moment program curated by Times Square Arts. Lorna Mills is represented by Transfer Gallery, New York, and DAM Gallery, Berlin.

Caughtinmoment is part of Sunrise/Sunset, a series of Internet art projects commissioned by the Whitney specifically for whitney.org to mark sunset and sunrise in New York City every day.
