I found this artist recently on the web, and kind of reminded me of your work. Although i don’t really see what the processes are that he follows to create this imagery (you might), some parts of it seem to relate to the intended distortion through Processing and electronics, the corrupted result of a translation from one file format to another and so on.

Something that i didn’t know is that all this belongs to Glitch art, the aestheticization of digital or analog errors, ”bugs”, how to manipulate unintended digital, tech errors and try make sense of them.

(There are interesting examples on the internet

or even a manifesto (??)

Reminds me of something like the “spam architecture” i guess http://bldgblog.blogspot.gr/2006/07/architecture-of-spam.html or somehow feeding normal data to a generator and being given an unexpected, but still active, result.

I don’t know if you have heard of David Tudor, but he used to be a composer experimenting with the distortion or alteration of sounds, using electronics and metal objects,magnets, to create compositions re-interpreted through this quite distinct process. (something like the annoying sounds you get when talking to the phone next to a microphone). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3a9LRFvqJg

Nice blog by the way! Keep going!

See you all!
