Every day an incomprehensible number of new digital media files are uploaded to hosting sites across the internet. Far too many for any one person to consume. Infinite Glitch is a stream-of-conciousness representation of this overwhelming flood of media, its fractured and degraded sounds and images reflecting how little we as an audience are able to retain from this daily barrage.
Infinite Glitch is an automated system that generates an ever-changing audio/video stream from the constantly increasing mass of media files freely available on the web. Source audio and video files are ripped from a variety of popular media hosting sites, torn apart, and recombined using collage and glitch techniques to create an organic, chaotic flood of sensory input.
-- FROM THE ARTIST'S STATEMENT
Curated by Leah Beeferman and Matthew Harvey, Parallelograms is a new online publication. For the project, Beeferman and Harvey invite an artist or collective to creatively respond to an image found online. The featured artist changes from week to week, and so far, they've worked with seven separate artists, including Everything Studio, Stephen Vitiello, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Mary Manning, Will Shapiro, Potential Estate and Duncan Malashock.
Currently in the prototype stage, Darkgame is a sensory deprivation computer game. The user wears custom made head gear, which triggers sensations. For more information about the project as it progresses, check the site.
