Glitch Art Photo Pool on Flickr

Glitch art photo pool

Well I uploaded all the photos from the ready made glitch art set to Flickr and joined the Glitch Art photo pool. There is some awesome stuff there. This fantastic photo is by user Luiza O. S. and while I do not entirely understand the language it appears to be a glitch from an error while loading from a CD-Rom.

Ready Made Glitch Art

For some reason my cable signal this morning was totally jacked! I suspect poor network architecture is the cause but who cares... the result is fantastic ready made glitch art! When I went out to the den this morning and my kids were freaked out by what they were watching and righfully so.

Ready made Glitch art glitch video art and weird distorted images found on TV

The pink haired girl above is probably my favorite of the still photos of the glitched out video...

I kept seeing amazing accidental compositions happening out of the destroyed video signal and had to document some of it. My kids were watching Lazytown which is a wierd show anyways and when it is damaged it is even weirder.

Ready made Glitch video..38 seconds in is totally sick!

This eye peeking through the video distortion is pretty cool too. I put all the stills and videos on this page of ready made glitch art.

Merce Death

Merce Death: Real Time Canon Test

Found this while checking out Chris Ashley's blog. As usual lots of nice new html drawings there and then this video. I had heard of Merce Death before but never taken the time to check him out until I saw this video on Chris's blog. It is cool check it out. He records himself with samplers and plays over them in real time. Nice work.

Chinese New Year in Shanghai

My friend Alex on the last leg of his world tour / vacation stopped in Shanghai for Chinese new year. Clearly there are no laws governing the use of fireworks over there and no one is concerned for anyones personal safety. It is awesome!

generative 3d slit scan experiments

generative slit scan image

These images were created using a digital slitscan process. I wrote a program that generates several groups of 3d primitives. The separate groups of primitives are rotated in slightly different directions slowly while every frame of rotation a column of pixels is sampled from the middle of the image and used to make a picture. The resulting images are an explosion of twisted volumetric shapes.

See the project page Generative 3d Slit Scan Experiments for 30 or so images like the ones shown in this post.

Here is a 38k low resolution shockwave demo you can play with!
