Kiera, .obj Glitch, 2013
“The process is fairly simple, I imported the .obj file into a hex editor (SublimeText 2) and removed arbitrary sets of values (not 1 or 0 though). A simple Max/MSP patch is used to display the modified files in a virtual space, as well as to map images of windows error messages to the surface of the figure, which is where the colours come from.
It’s all very similar to the practice of glitching images using a text editor, it’s just that in this case it uses a 3D file.
Here is a video of another glitch I did using a model of a couch, the quality isn’t great, it’s just a screen recording. https://vimeo.com/55719137”
