Learn how to databend and datamosh images and video, to compress and re-compress, animate, break, re-animate, and turn conventional image processing inside out.

In this crash course on Glitch Art we will cover a wide variety of extended techniques for software based image and video file processing. Glitch Art, the art of artifacts, zeros in on the remains of the broken scaffolding circumscribing the disappearance of image post-compression. A discussion of early glitch art, artists, visual aesthetics, and conceptual aesthetics (appropriation of artifacts, and the technical appropriation of entropic processes) will center around a hands on breaking of data structures and file formats.

Led by Phillip Stearns [NYC]. Phillip Stearns received his MFA in music composition and integrated media from the Cal Arts in 2007 and his BS in music technology from UC Denver in 2005. Deconstruction, dissection, and reconfiguration are methods he commonly employs in his hands-on approach of using electronics to create phenomenological works of light and sound. Through the application of extended techniques for electronic media, the circuit is explored as a means for sculpting electricity and a site for critical inquiry.
