Corruption | Skillshare Projects




Hey.  I call myself Dexter Riley.  I've been into art my whole life but in the past few months I've become more and more fascinated by glitch art, both analog and digital, and I admire the rainbow-like beauty, yet lack of pseudo-intellectual pretense that glitch art provides.

For this I took a BMP and a JPG of the same photo (The photo I got off google images, I just typed in "high fashion") . The BMP I loaded into audacity and put a gentle echo effect and then exported back as a BMP.  The JPG I opened with a hex editor, tinkered around, then saved.  Then I rotated the picture 90 degrees, tinkered some more in the hex editor, then rotated it back 90 degrees.  then I opened them in Paint.NET as two layers and set the JPG blend mode to Overlay and flattened it.

This photo is a JPG and A PNG.  I rotated the PNG 90 degrees and thats why the bars are vertical.  and the JPG I did the same hex editor tinkering then opened them in Paint.NET as layers and played with the blend mode of the JPG.

These are pictures I'd done before the class.  I suppose neither of these are "pure" glitch art since there is some processing in the end, but I'm hoping some of the techniques in this class will provide me with more tools that I can use to get a wider array of effects.


I hope this GIF shows up and animates properly.  This is just me experimenting with the TIFF mashup technique with audacity.  Previously I could only get it to work on BMP files, however that was on my PC, so I may have to use my Mac exclusively for glitchin photos because the Mac seems much more forgiving with corrupt files and I don't have near as many broken files.  I'm not a fan of using GIMP for animation, so I'll just have to export all corrupt files to a stable form before I load them into Photoshop.


I have been playing with Audaity and I thought I'd post what each major effect does to a photo

This is the original.  I stole it off /p/ on 4chan.  She's wearing panties so you know it's art and not porn.

This is just the simple reverse.  Nothing too special, but I can see it being interesting if used right.

This is the amplify effect. However you can only put a negative amplification on the file.  This was -1.5 db, I imagine the effect is much more interesting on a much lower number.

This is the echo effect.  Very nice. Very colorful. I think this was a half second delay, but i think the ghsot images are closer together the lower the delay you enter.

This is the compressor.  Pretty similar to amplify, although i think it might be slightly more saturated. Gives a nice soap bubble sheen.  I'm definitely gonna play around with the settings for this one.

This is the AUdelay.  Somewhat similar to the Echo, but again, This seems more bright and saturated.

The AUdistortion effect.  Very cool.  I like the diagonal texture that seems to be a byproduct.

The Dynamincs Processor. Nice color.  Nice contrast.

The Equalizer.  this is very cool, Has a liquid metal look. Obviously depending on the curve you draw the effect will be wildly different.

GVerb effect.  Ceases to resemble the actual photo, however I'm going to play around with the settings for this as well because I really like it.

Invert.  Nothing too fancy on the girl herself, but i like the effect on the shadows and highlights.  this one is probably better combined with other effects.

This is the high pass filter.  As you can see this is very wild and colorful, but retains the shape of the subject pretty well.

This is the low pass filter.  The opposite, very high contrast very low color saturation, but still very cool.

The leveller.  Has the wild colors, but somewhat muted and pastel looking.

Normalize.  I'm gonna stop with the redundant descriptions now.

Phaser.  Verry cool.

Tremolo.  very subtle scanline effect.

Wahwah.  This is very cool, has that scanline effect but also a very high contrast stenciled look.

I tried some other effects too but they just plain broke the file.


Just an animated gif of different audacity data mashups.  None of these are more than two TIFFs blended at the same time.  some of the imported files were JPG TextEdit glitches that I converted into TIFFs.


I've experimented with the datamashup method from Lesson 4 applied to video.  I'm very pleased with the result.
