Misao Okawa is a young, 117 years old. She’s also world’s oldest person.

Okawa celebrated her birthday a day early with family, and when asked about her long life she had a very simple, yet poignant response.

“It seemed rather short,” she said.

Okawa has said in the past that the secret to her long life has been eating sushi and regularly getting 8 hours of sleep, according to Guinness World Records.

Okawa was born on March 5, 1898, and she officially claimed the Guinness record title in June 2013 after Japan’s Jiroemon Kimura died at 116.

Whiskey brand Ballantine’s teamed up with British street artist INSA to created what they are calling the world’s largest animated GIF.

The piece was created at the end of last year in Rio De Janeiro with a team of 20 people. It took about 4 days to complete the 57,515 square-meter image which consisted of four different paintings.

INSA dubs himself a ‘GIF-ITI’ artist, and he has created numerous animated works such as this in which he paints and repaints designs over and over again, stitching photos of them together to create movement.

In this case, he used a satellite in space to take the pictures.

“The internet has kind of changed our view on art,” he says. “And I wanted to cross both worlds and make work that existed in online space even more than it existed in the real space.”

Here’s a video explaining the new work.
