Created by Charlie Behrens, this short film is intended to encourage a creative audience to seek out Kevin Slavin’s talk “Those Algorithms Which Govern Our Lives”. It employs an effect which takes place in Google Earth when its 3D street photography and 2D satellite imagery don’t register correctly.
This glitch is applied as a metaphor for the way that our 21st century supercities are physically changing to suit the needs of computer algorithms rather than human employees.
A 28 page research document about the various stages of the project can be found here. Includes references, history of glitch and much more.
- Mesh Grammars: Studies for a Dome by Dillenburger & Hansmeyer Mesh Grammars: Studies for a Dome is a project by Benjamin Dillenburger & Michael Hansmeyer trying to create "highly articulated architecture using a novel method of folding". The duo designed a series of domes by folding a surface over and over again, using a dynamic process entitled mesh grammars. Domes have a long architectural lineage extending into prehistory, and have always long been an expression of both technical and artistic skills. Our aim is to expand this typology with a new language of form in an extreme resolution of detail that could not be achieved using traditional processes.We develop a process called mesh grammars that combines mesh refinement techniques with the logic of shape grammars. Unlike traditional shape grammars, mesh grammars do not consider isolated objects but always view objects as embedded in a network – the mesh. Read more about the project here and see also other "grammars". Benjamin Dillenburger is an architect with focus on computational architecture. He currently works as researcher and lecturer at the Chair for CAAD, ETH Zurich, Switzerland. Open 1-Gigapixel […]

- Glitch Textiles – Phillip Stearns uses short circuited cameras to create blanket patterns The following are a set of 60x40" woven blankets by Phillip Stearns, produced using images generated from short circuited cameras as pattern sources. These objects are layered deep with irony: a digital photograph made with a broken camera is mechanically woven as a blanket commonly advertised as a kitsch object---something meant to cherish memories now becomes a way to cherish corrupted memory; the cold logic of digital systems is fashioned into a warm […]

- Time Tilings – Dissolution of boundaries between real and perceived Created by Pablo Valbuena, Time Tilings are four site-specific interventions that explore the overlap of the physical and the virtual, the generation of mental spaces by the observer, the dissolution of the boundaries between real and […]
- YouGlitch [openFrameworks, Mac] The Software (Corrupt.Video) allows its users to glitch videos stored on their computer, videos from their webcam or their desktop in realtime. When a clip is recorded, a 10 seconds video and an animated GIF are saved locally and automatically uploaded to uglitch.com. Currently only available for Mac, iPhone/iPad version is in the works. YouGlitch is a project by Martial Geoffre-Rouland and Benjamin Gaulon, based on Corrupt, a web based Glitch Art Software allowing its user to upload and share corrupted images on www.corrupt.recyclism.com. YouGlitch was created using openFrameworks using ofxGifEncoder addon from Jesus Gollonet. Fork YouGlitch on github. uglitch.com See […]
- Black Mirror [Events] Black Mirror is a projection sculpture by Robert Seidel currently on show at the Young Projects gallery in Los angeles. A combination of laser-cut paper in gallery space with projected imagery, overwhelm with richness and visual depth. “Since my first works I’m interested in arranging fractured memories to abstract-organic „Tableaux Vivants“. In a process-based fusion of nature, painting and sculpture a pictorial flow comes to life that connects with the associations of the viewer, so every moment unfolds new rhizomatic connections with the semi- narrative strands.” Black Mirror was created using 3ds max, Max Script and After Effects. The paper parts are based on drawings, inspired by bark beetle traces, then laser cut and plotted. Young Projects, Space B210, Los Angeles March 22nd to August 20th 2011 Credits: Sculpture and Projection: Robert Seidel, Documentation Editor: Falk Müller, Music: Richard Eigner, Curator: Paul Young Project Page Robert Seidel (1977) began studying biology at the Friedrich Schiller University (Jena, Germany) and finished his media design diploma at the Bauhaus University (Weimar, Germany). His films have been shown in a museal context at ZKM (Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe), MOCA Taipei and Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp as well as hundreds of festivals (Prix Ars Electronica, onedotzero, DOTMOV, IFF Rotterdam, EMAF), galleries, magazines, books and TV programmes worldwide. New works were presented in Seoul, Milano, Los Angles and Altenburg this […]
- The Transcendent City [Inspiration] Richard Hardy, a recent graduate from the Bartlett School of Architecture in London, created this amazing video, exploring questions whether the conception of artificial intelligence has been a necessity in human evolution and if we therefore should embrace emergent technologies to engage with problems of sustainability and the city — for Nic Clear's Unit 15. Richard writes: The Transcendent City is an autonomous artificial machine that extends across the earth adapting to the natural eco-systems it encounters while deriving its energy from the renewable resources available at each particular site. The systems desire is to maintain homeostasis within itself whilst maintaining homeostasis within the greater system, Gaia. Its processes are engineered on the molecular scale by nano technologies controlled by molecular computers that monitor and analyse the environment. More on Flickr + Vimeo (via […]
