Thanks to all of you, amazing followers for an incredible year!  Thanks also to Tumblr for creating such an awesome resource for building and sharing creative projects.

This may be the last post of the year, marking the end of a year of aesthetic and formal research of Glitch Art, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of this blog.  I’ll continue to post glitch related works here as I continue to explore and cook up new techniques, though not at as frantic a pace as in the past.

This coming year, much of my energy will be focused on taking this project offline, continuing the Glitch Textiles work, and looking into publishing Year of the Glitch in book form.  So, keep on following all you awesome follows, and share this project with all your friends.  There is more to come.  I’ll be seeing you in the next year.

Happy New Year!

Forest for the Trees (Series)

HD video shot while driving through the Rocky Mountain National Park was databent in Audacity.  Images are stills pulled from playing back the compromised file in Quicktime 7 Pro.  Playback artifacts are highly dependent on the way in which the timeline is scrubbed.
