Here is a ‘detail’ sample from my experiments with data-bending and corrupting image files of the CR2 format (Canon Raw v.2).
In these I’m exploring the aesthetic of digital breakdown of photo-realistic imagery where fragmentation, unnatural bright colors, and pixel artifacts are the main visual focus and goal. The result of purposely corrupting a file is never predictable – everyone who engages in this technique knows that this process is finicky, time-consuming, unconventional and exciting! Sometimes the files break completely, and sometimes they produce interesting, and awe inducing results.
I will continue posting on this topic so stay tuned!
Hope you enjoy these examples.
Curiosity: Is the worship of the glitch a reaction against the hyperrealistic detail that characterizes our commercial visual culture?
