AND BEYOND: Continued Adventures In Glitching

Some fun parts where the smudging makes it lose pace, but overall I am not thrilled by my results so far.

LESSON 4: PART TWO:

Original Instagram'd photo in Petaluma, California.

Original Instagram'd photo from flight to California.

Datamashed.

Made into a .gif with added frames to change hue and then incrementally added Photoshop's square wave distortion filter to give a melty effect.

LESSON 4:

Last year, my grandparents renewed their vows before my grandmother passed away. Here is one of just my grandfather.  It was taken before the ceremony in their assisted living facility.

I mashed it with a photo from a trip that I took last summer to visit my brother in California (he recently moved and wasn't around for the vow renewal or the funeral).  I am uncertain of the particular photo that I mashed it with, but I do know that it was one with a lot of trees.  Perhaps one of Muir Woods, or one from Napa Valley.

Made it into a .gif in Photoshop by: adding additional frames, tweaking the hue incrementally in each, and then the contrast in the last one to give it a flash as if the lamp--which is now a mere static ghost in the background--was flickering.

LESSON 3: PART THREE:

Inspired by Bradley Urso's macroblock index/scale project I decided to experiment and see how that works.

1.) I took 6 macroblocks (16x16) from one of my Lesson 1 images

2.) indexed/scaled each to 512x512

3.) Used Audacity to get two additional images from effects (mainly echo & phaser)

4.) Created animated .gifs in photoshop with additional frames created from layer blends. Result below:

The difference Bradley Urso's process makes:

(direct resizing 16x16 -> 512x512)

(index/scaled following Bradley Urso's methods)

LESSON 3: PART TWO:

After working for most of the day I decided to relax with another try at Audacity glitching using another personal photo:

Echo:

Cropped:

I am much more satisfied with these results but I kept going: cropped it further, did the TextEdit techniques for a few iterations, and compiled them into this gif:

LESSON 3:

I started with a screenshot of my desktop with many browser windows open but the results were dull.  I decided to try some free use flickr photos and settled on this one: http:[email protected]/8577048388/in/pool-freeuse

1.) Here is the result of copy&paste/phaser/echo in Audacity:

I used the same settings as those in the lesson.  I tried equalizing it but the color pallete was already dull and that just made it worse so I stopped here.

Decided to try all the techniques with another Vignette photo of my own:

2.) Here is the result of copy&paste/phaser/echo/equalization in Audacity as an animated .gif:

3.) My favorite of my experiments in Audacity is still the one that I use as my profile picture (used echo and possibly amplification):

LESSON 2:

Followed the outline of the video but used Photoshop.  Compiled of pictures from the TextEdit side of my project for Lesson 1 (the changes were more incremental than the ones I did with HexFiend).

I also made one yesterday from the results of the Find&Replace from both HexFiend and TextEdit:

I added a couple extra frames and played with layer blend options in Photoshop to transition between the two main images.

LESSON 1:

I followed the techniques in the video using a photo that I took a few years ago on the US side of Niagara Falls.  At the time I had an Android phone, and thus the photo is heavily filtered with an app called "Vignette."

Regarding the video: I was excited to learn about the find/replace technique & overwrite mode (in the week leading up to this class I have been testing out various glitches, and so I was familiar with some of the stuff).  Here is a mashup photo of the different iterations:

 

1.) Copy & Paste

2.) Adding Text (Hex: Overwrite)

3.) Find & Replace
