GIFs vs. Porcelain

Not only is our contemporary society based on mathematical and scientific models but also pervaded by the digital. It surrounds us every day but only a few really know how the software behind it works.

How can a kind of visual epitome of the digital, the GIF, short for Graphics Interchange Format, be transferred to porcelain? I came across the GIFs by Canadian artist Nicolas Sassoon. They give the computer screen some haptic depth. I find it interesting how this depth can be created on a flat screen and want to apply the same concept to porcelain.
