FINAL DISPATCH FROM OBLIVION

first, something special:

AUDACITY OF GLITCH
book i made to sort through all the different effects possible when bending images in audacity, download over in google docs: http://goo.gl/mMXXH


IMG_0255 bent, the test image used to generate my Audacity of Glitch doc.


dictaphone's lament, an experiment taking an audio file (M4A) and loading up the raw data as an interleaved RGB TIFF image, zoomed in a little and oversaturated.

digging into JPG artifacting glitch with a drawing zoomed in and saved multiple times, mashed a little, and oversaturated to accentuate the blockiness

bending pretty tumblr girls with a bit of pitch shifting and some other audacious tomfoolery

GLITCHED LUNAR CARTOGRAPHY

PLAIN SILLINESS


whereupon i start mashing Borderlands 2 screenshots and postcards of ganesha. chose them both because it looked like theyd stack well and they have some innate pixelly quality already (either from the TV or the 4-color printing).

got a gun, some candy, a friendly rat, and an elephant dude... sounds like the start of something good.

MASHUPS

squishing some original photos together in audacity. i found my headers were up front so i replaced the header on one of the files/channels with silence and left the rest of the file alone and re-exported as gifs.

source photos for mashup, already pushed some saturation to extremes to pull out some spark before mashing.

GIF ANIMATION

most of my original source material these days involves taking pictures with my phone, lately in my long obsession with the beauty of dripping car juices in wet parking lots. i see something inherently glitchy in those gritty scenes, so i started working up frames for a gif...

for some reason it's not wanting to show the animation on skillshare so i uploaded it to my work in progress tumblr: SEE IT MOVE: somethingformed.tumblr.com/post/46689127171

frames from Vuc6CTlqYx-Sequence.gif


individual segments going into the animation. each were manually passed through hex and fiddled with in some way, then stitched together and compressed down to a shareable gif. did you miss the link above? SEE IT MOVE

HEX SUBSTITUTION


worked up a sequence using a found image.


fig. 2
mhd8r134by1qie8fko1_1280.jpg

started with an image pilfered from a tumblr somewhere. reverse image lookup may reveal its original author.



fig. 3
mhd8r134by1qie8fko1_1280 0.jpg

compressed to 0 quality jpg and pushed the levels/saturation into high energy.

fig. 4
mhd8r134by1qie8fko1_1280 0 1221.jpg

first actual substitution pass, replacing all instances of "12" with "21. i love how it only influenced part of the image. 

fig. 5
mhd8r134by1qie8fko1_1280 0 1221 2x 0 mir 1221 2x 0 copy.jpg

after some rotation and flipping, resized to 200% and replaced 12 with 21 again. so you see the older lower resolution effects on the left, the newer higher res effects on the right.

fig. 6
mhd8r134by1qie8fko1_1280 0 1221 2x 0 mir 1221 2x 0 1221.jpg

did everything again one more time: 200%, save at 0 quality, replace 12s with 21s. the original image is utterly obliterated and we're left with component iridescence.
