I dont know, i developed a patch in the last 2 weeks, lets call it ‘supra glitch’. Its a kind of mixture of generative structure, feedback and error. This is not a so complex thing (patch), but it has a nice output. The idea was (as earlier) to NOT use any input, just connecting back the output of the structure (lets call it feedback). Iam so happy with the result.
So whats the problem now?
What is this exactly what iam doing? Is it a kind of software art? Or creation of some new aesthetic aspects of this whole glitch story ?
Sometimes iam just closing my eyes, and i see some pictures, i see what i want to really see. And i sit down and prepare something, what is:
1. in good case, really close to the original imagination and lets say i’am satisfied.
2. in a less good case, not so close to the original idea, but i still like it.
3. worst case, its far from the original idea and iam not ok with the result, or i made a mistake when i imagined that picture.
But if i start to watch my stuff from outside (and its important) or i show them to others (others=non geek people, with the right critical sensitivity), i feel, that i have to defend my stuff.
So then what is this exactly? Is it still interesting if i don’t start to talk immediately about the history of glitch and generated (non indirect) of the random picture errors? Is it still something or just a couple of ‘nonphotoshop’ based digital hedonism?
I try to define, how does it work then. What can be the border between art, design, and digital something?
The thing is like this, if i’am in this way, i always have to have something what i try to express, but if i make a non figurative, i mean abstract picture, based on a stupid error, but from other hand its well structured (visually) it doesnt have to loose the integrity of express the idea. It doesnt have to be non conceptual (and yes i can stimulate that fancy video memory to give back something really planned (desired) picture). But i really have to define why i use this very random based way of self expression. Because if i dont have a very strong explanation for that, its better to keep the distance and:
1. buy a painting equipment
2. use photoshop (or any well controllable, non generative, non algorithmic and non modular software)
3. just dream about a new, non explored way of self-expression.
And more like this:
Do i search for a specified form (composition)?
Ok, what i think is a paradigm of perfection, non perfection, but thats a different topics. Here in this self-reflection iam searching the meaning of my content (output), looking for some really acceptable answers, instead of starting a new composition, because now i feel i need some answers (from my self), a better way to understaind:
what iam doing,
why iam doing that.
