Couple of months ago I wrote about glitch art, data bending and data moshing. Since then I have been heavily destroying code, hacking video and mashing Gifs together.
I’ve stepped into the murky world of Tumblr, where I have been showcasing my
creations destructions. You can see my work and follow me here - Neon Gl1tch
Catastrophic Null is a short film I made when I was hunkering down during Hurricane Sandy. As the power went down all over New York I started to think about how much we rely on technology to feed us with useless information. And it’s this digital garbage I wanted to show crossing into our world. I have corrupted video files from the internet of such amazing thought provoking shows, films and music videos. Such as the Jersey Shore, The Only way is Essex, Miley Cyrus – Party in the USA and The Paris Hilton Sex Tape. Then I added the glitched files to black and white still photographs to make it some what more pleasing on the eye. With heavy grain applied to the film, it gives the effect that the photograph is moving. Watch at Full Screen and in HD if you can.
Also, thanks to Lee for helping me with the music sample, I don’t know what I would do without him.
