Created as a net artwork by Ted Davis, TEXT2IMAGE is both a web app and now iPhone/iPad app that explores the nature of digital media through the use of JPG format or better know as glitch. The app uses JPG corruption technique to visualise any word, phrase or ‘story’.
Within the realms of cross-media visualization and glitch aesthetics, TEXT2IMAGE investigates alternative ways to create an image and analyze texts.
You can switch between color <-> b/w imagery, type any text and see it converted into an image you can save to your library or share by email. Likewise, your images are automatically uploaded to the online database and you can view up to 25 recently created images within the app.
