Glitch: Visual Technology

September 1st, 2016 - September 30th, 2016

About The Work

GLITCH is a show comprised of local and national artists who push the limits of visual technology. It features both print and video installations. The artists circuit-bend VHS players, convert images to audio and back again, combine stop motion animations and data corruption, find out what darkness looks like to a camera, print Snapchat filter glitches with 17th century processes, and rip the seams from seamless panoramas.

About The Artists

Corey Johnson: Corey’s use of limited tools and circuit bending techniques to craft glitch work provides a narrow but deep meditation on nostalgia, nightmares, and the relationship of humanity and technology.

Kaia Hodo: Kaia treats the image like a song. She opens photos in a music editing program, to interpret the picture data as sound. From there she mixes in clips of songs and adds effects, treating the waveform like a collage. After exporting the sound file back out as a bitmap, the alterations to the waveform translated as alterations to the data for the picture.

C. Alex Clark: What does a camera see in the dark? C will photograph complete darkness – usually with the lens cap on. He then uses image editing software to repeatedly bring out detail until something emerges. What exactly we are seeing in the final product is unclear.

Nihil Minus: Nihil is inspired by the fluxus movement, technological failure, and the mathematics & textures of analog waveforms and signals. She makes videos, net art, installations, live visuals, and experiments at the intersection of art and technology.

Wanbli Gamache: Wanbli combines stop motion, glitch manipulation, audio, and portraits to collage a survey of organic and synthetic materials being broken down by erosion and weathering.

Becca Jones: The purpose of the panorama function in the iphone is to create a seamless and static image. Becca abuses this function to rip the seams out of the image and create a patchwork view of moments in time.
