Text2Image [iPhone, iPad]

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.

See teddavis.org/text2image for examples.

      The only thing to spoil this app is: Paying for it and having his website url on each image you save. Unless he removes his link, this is not worth downloading, update needed.

      Hey Thiefthers, I understand where you’re coming from and it’s something that I’ll strongly reconsider. For now, I’d justify it in that it keeps an ID with each image, soon to be used as an easy way for people to recall the original text/image when desired or shared..

      As a prospect customer (now a non-), that’s exactly what put me off, too.
