Anonymous Paintings Turn Copyrighted Paintings From Google Art Project Into Abstract 3D Compositions It seems that Google will stop at nothing to digitize the world into virtual landscapes, from the streets near your home to the Amazon jungle, and even the NASA Kennedy Space Center. And, of course, the interiors of buildings don’t escape Google’s roving nine eyes. Though it’s not just any old interiors in the spotlight, but the interiors of the world’s biggest art museums housed in the Google Art Project. Google’s various eyeballs mean you can tour the world and its art museums without leaving the comfort of the glowing screen, but as with all technology—and something anyone who glanced at the now defunct The New Aesthetic Tumblr blog will know—machine vision isn’t without its errors and distortions. These glitches have long been celebrated artistically as an aesthetic in themselves and in Joao Enxuto and Erica Love’s Anonymous Paintings series, they use digital distortions to give an alternative way to view some of the works in the Google Art Project. @stewart23rd

These marks are highly stackable, and stacking large numbers of them can lead to interesting/unexpected results. The HTML5 glitch text generator can be used to rapidly generate this type of glitch text for copy-pasting to social media or elsewhere, and also functions as a canvas for creating text art.

parody Glitch Art Resources | Phillip Stearns This is a collection of resources I find relevant to my own creative practice concerning Glitch Art. It’s by no means complete or exhaustive, and sadly, though I am trying to include as many relevant and important figures as possible, it will be impossible for me to include them all. I will do my best to continuously update reorganize and revise this list as time goes on. Feel free to contact me regarding missing entries, questionable inclusions, or for the sake of talking about any of the items listed here.

cool old animations Image Glitch Tool With this app, you can glitch your own images by dragging an image into the browser window. Use the sliders in the control panel to alter the glitched parameters. The image updates in real time. This app corrupts some bytes in an image. Because of the way JPEG encoding works, the corrupted file still shows a corrupted image. It was inspired by soulwire’s experiment in Flash. remix culture They Came From Within: B-Movie Title Design of the 1940s & 1950s SHOCKING! THRILLING! TOTALLY NUDE! B films are the wild west of the American movie landscape. Earning its title from the long-abandoned practice of attaching risky low-budget films to first-run — or “A” — features on a double bill, B films favor no particular genre or era; any Hollywood production is subject to its own B treatment, provided that its profit potential has been established. Unable to rely on substance alone, B productions have mastered the art of marketplace recognition through bold slogans and type design, shocking imagery and loud colors. While following a similar trajectory to mainstream title design, B-movie titles’ nonexistent budgets often invited novice designers and craftsmen from other trades. It’s equally true that many B titles borrow liberally from their big brothers. Strangers on a Train: The 1940s and Film Noir *Major studios at the time were: Fox Film Corp.
