First of all, let me say that Transmediale did a really great job at accommodating the needs of 70+ hackers and their tech-works, providing us with an 'open pantry' of tech equipment, catering and tech support. Personally, I hacked my way into the Hackathon (I was not invited but hacked in via a twitter backdoor) so I am extra happy to be part of the event. It was a very exhausting but interesting and fun experience. However the fact that the work I created became part of the main Transmediale exhibition, which finally became a marketplace is a dynamic that is easily overlooked but that should be considered. Not in the first place because the audience needed an entrance ticket to go and see the exhibition, yet the (invited) artists did not get payed, but because the dynamic between the internet or digital arts and money or economies is one that is evolving quite rapidly.

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.

Year of the Glitch yearoftheglitch: Hey, there! I’m teaching series of Glitch Art courses on Skillshare. Sign up for the Basic Databending class today.Use this link + code TUMBLR50 for a 50% discount on enrollment: (limited to the first 50 students)Glitch Art - Creating Design from Error: Databending Basics will show you how to use text editors and hex editors to make glitch art and then turn a series of glitched images into an animated GIF. We begin with a brief introduction to what Glitch Art is, the materials involved, and then dive into hacking the materiality of our digital world.PROJECT CHALLENGE!

Well, mine are not really skeletons but they are certainly in the strange and weird category.This is Alfred Dobbins (often known as AC-DC). Like Betty Bunny, he comes around at this time of the year and he is well known for his eerie sounds and haunting music created by his electric personality. AC-DC is mixed media.

How to Photoshop the color of absolutely anything Photoshop and Photoshop Elements are the ultimate re-colorizing tools because you can use them to put a fresh coat of paint on anything. You can repaint your car, change the color of your cabinets, and even recolor your hair before heading to the salon. Here are two easy ways to get it done that work in nearly any version of either program: Using a Hue/Saturation adjustment layer The Only Glitch Text Generator You'll Ever Need Here’s a new generator that allows you to ͋g̈l̑i͗t͓c̫h͉ ͂a͟n̪ỷ ͡t̖e᷿x̫t̳ ͮṣo͠ ͌i̬t̺ ᷅b͊e̸͖͙c͐oͪm̤e᷁sͭ ̦i̦n͎t͝r̿i̔c̞a͈ṫe͢l͝y̘ ̥f̸ục̴k͙eͩd̵ ̶w̓i̴t̘h͗ ̝ ̸̸̝u̸̸᷃n̸̸ͫt̸̸̹i̸̸ͤļ̸̸ ̸̸᷊i̸̸͚t̸̸᷈ ̸̸̇í̸̸s̸̸͈ ̸̸̧c̸̸͕o̸̸̫m̸̸̽p̸̸̮l̸̸̙ȇ̸̸t̸̸̙e̸̸ͮl̸̸᷊y̸̸͈ ̸̸̘u̸̸ͦn̸̸᷄ȑ̸̸e̸̸᷃ă̸̸d̸̸͛a̸̸̠b̸̸̝l̸̸̸e̸̸̅.̸̸̾ ̸̸͎F̶̞͉̅᷄̅᷀̅̅̒̅̈́̅̅̅U̸̖̅̇̅̈́̅̅̒̅̅̅ͦ̅͜N̅̐̅᷃̅́̅̒̅͐̅ͮ̅ͬ̅!̛̅ͩ̅̅͒̅̒̅ͥ̅̍̅͆̅ In recent years, artists such as Glitchr have helped popularize a certain style of “glitch text” that revolves around the use of combining diacritical marks. 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.

Glitch Art Resources 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. Lecture Notes GIF-Industrial Complex: An Inside Look One weekend afternoon in September, Mike Konczal sat down at his computer to research a blog post. Another miserable jobs report had restarted the debate about what, if anything, the Federal Reserve should do to help unemployed Americans find a job. Konczal, a Roosevelt Institute think tanker specializing in economics, wanted to write about it. But he knew he couldn’t do it the way the rest of the media had, a stultifying mix of acronyms and technical terms.

People Wire sculpture People Wire sculpture is a collaboration between graphic designer and illustrator Ayaka Ito and programmer Randy Church that features, to put it simply, snapshots of shredded people. Combining each of their respective creative expertises along with a shared admiration for Rachel Ducker’s tautly wired sculptures and the defiant Flash paintings of interactive designer Erik Natzke, the two discovered a way to create an interface that integrates 3D line work into photographic compositions. Using applications like Flash and Photoshop, Ito and Church reconfigure images into interwoven portraits where the subject becomes part of the environment. Comprised of saturated strings entangled by what could have been a spontaneous breeze, each subject looks simultaneously smooth, surreal and spun.

Exploring canvas drawing techniques I recently started working on adding some good-looking brushes to Fabric.js. We've had free drawing functionality for a while, but it was... laughable. Just a simple pencil of varying thickness. Far from anything you would see in those amazing drawing applications popping up in the last few years — Mr. doob's Harmony, deviantART's Muro, or mudcu.be Sketchpad. 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.

Loop the Loop Loop the Loop Technology A brief history of the GIF Screengrab from EastLondonGays.Tumblr.com, March 2013 If an annual award for the ‘hottest digital image format online’ existed, this year’s winner would be the Graphics Interchange Format or gif: an eight-bit, 256-colour bitmap picture file that can composite a series of stills into an infinitely loopable, silent moving image.
