Coplanar - Syrian Civil War
Z-fighting artifacts are used to render the Flags of Syria, each mapped to two coplanar 2D surfaces sharing the same coordinates in a 3D rendering environment, as a dynamic hybrid.

Trying out some new Infected Blanket designs for the New Museum store. Glitch Textiles will be featured starting October 24th.

Top and middle left: H1N1 

Bottom and middle right: Rhinovirus Type 89

The complete genomes from both organisms were mapped to a palette containing 64 colors, each representing a specific grouping of 3 base pairs. The results are in the middle two images. Larger designs obtained by mirroring.

Woven Cotton Sudoku Gradient

The solution to a sudoku puzzle was used to generate an 8 tone palette which was then applied to a smooth two-tone gradient. This reversible, easy to care for fabric will soon be available by the meter or as a simple scarf.

Scarf Dimensions - 30cm x 160cm

Full Raw Width - 165 cm

Thursday Reading: Breaking Things on Purpose by Doug Bierend
On Glitch Art and the work of Sabato Visconti
(image by Visconti)
Notes:
There’s a whole breed of artist out there, who are not only concerned with using tools, but with their making as an integral practice of critical engagement with the material and conceptual content of their process and work. Tool making is necessarily social and political in its scope.
Glitch Art generated through algorithmic means is a bit like a painter experimenting with the application of paint on the canvas. The canvas is taken as default, the paint is taken as default, but the process of application and its results are of primary concern. The image is default, the fact that it is simply a matrix of color values is taken as default, the algorithms are selected or crafted as processes which “push pixels” around the screen. Where this variant of glitch art departs from its edgier cousins is in its lack of critical engagement with the materials underlying or informing the conditions necessary for digital images in the first place.
A good example of a deeper glitch oriented practice can be found in the work of Kim Asendorf. Though not strictly a glitch artist, Asendorf engages with the materials, practices, and concepts of glitch art quite broadly in his work. His exploration of pixel sorting touches upon the evocation of error and the surface characteristics of visual glitches which happens, paradoxically, as a consequence of ordering all the pixels according to their numeric value. This form of pixel pushing, deals with the image as a matrix of pixels, touching upon our perception of the image as such, revealing the arbitrary nature in which images can be conveyed through a screen.
In Extra File, Asendorf takes up the task of writing his own file formats and image compression schemes. The result is not only a new family of formats for shrinking and sharing images, but a collection of artifacts waiting to be discovered and explored, accessible through data bending or otherwise manipulating, or corrupting the image data.
One step further: something I would like to add to my wishlist is a image viewing application which allows for the real-time interpretation of mis-compiled image rendering algorithms. It’s one thing to bust a JPG, and a whole other to bust the algorithm used to render the JPG. Evidence of the potential for tweaking with rendering algorithms can be found in Nick Briz’s Glitch Codec Tutorial. Though it deals with re-writing and compiling the source code for video algorithms, the same basic idea should be applicable to just about any media.

Top original artist under the glitch art tag :). But there are glitch artists way better than me out there! Go out and find them! I’m more of the artistic equivalent of a science popularizer tbh. I rely heavily on glitching things popular with various fandoms and subcultures. Nothing wrong with that of course and I love getting messages from so many of you saying I inspired you to try out the art form, but I’d like to encourage you all to do some digging to find other glitch artists out there :)
Edit: I did a post linking to some other artists a week or two ago, I’ll reblog it again soon with some additions!

Thanks for the shout out!
