pop “artifactized”

12 04 2012

When iam working with human faces, i usually choose anonymous portraits or self portraits. There are some exceptions, for example the one which i made for the memory of  Amy or lately when i used a Mao Cetung portrait photo.
When iam using existing images i always use different search options and when the portrait of Mao came randomly, it was a bit surprise. I decided to choose it. I repeat: it was a decision. Why not “pop it” my glitches.   This one with mao was a unique case, in the middle of my spam experiment, and i decided to develop an image something like this: Mao with my spams.
In the middle of the work i got an email, someone wanted to write an article about the recycling of Maos portraits. I got in and made a kind of statement. And she made a nice article but i feel important to add some feedbacks afterhand:
– the pop art line in my work is not that strong and heavy, i do like pop art and yes i admire it, but don’t want to turn glitch art in to pop art or into a “new cyber pop art”. I just simply use glitch and image errors as tools to express my artistic purposes.
– the bright colours feeling is totally random, this image published on the site is using different feedbacks and blend errors. I didn’t want to qualify Mao with colours, i just followed my choleric experience to stabilize the composition.
-yes iam coming from an ex communist country but the point is that i don’t want to talk about bloody dictators or qualify eras, i just wanted to try to find the place for these idols in my imaginary world.
and just for this post one more  Mao image:




glitches and bus tops

2 03 2012

I was invited to show a couple of my works in the project called bus tops. The administrator of the glitch art flicker group Dodd asked me to present some of my moving glitch images on the the led screens of some london based bus stops.

here si the full list of the artists:

Glitch-Irion
Stallio
Pixel Noizz
Notendo
Ben Baker-Smith
Hellocatfood
Gridworks1

and a really nice introduction to the glitch art section:

Birds and others

24 01 2012

 

Half year ago i started to work with broken 3d forms and artifacts. I used many different parameters for the animation, and i got a random result, it was like a bird. After half year when a friend of mine mentioned this image i reworked that project and i started to generate directly birds. The animated versions you can see on my “anigif” site.

 

and a reindeer…

and a dead dog (not so optimistic closing image, sorry for that)

Abused Images

13 10 2011

I took part in the exhibition called “abuse images” in hungary. There are 5 prints and some animated gifs from my triangle experiments, mentioned earlier.

The concept is very interesting, because this exhibition is more like a photographic biennial , but none of the artists made any photo based image composition, most of them used different image corruption technics, lets call it failures.

My notion was to involve generative forms with artifacts.

and here is a video what i made with the same patch:

 





all made by triangles

12 09 2011

Iam preparing for an exhibition in Hungary at the end of September. I will show some digital prints and animated gifs. Basically its just a couple of triangles generating an artifact. In a certain setup this artifact is totally controllable and i was able to play with some more parameters. The result is more like an optical vision, but the artifact is enough deeply present to break the perfection of these images.

All are animated gifs, please click them:

imperfliction -online show

30 08 2011

Online show by  Brandon Blommaert and by me. Hosted by Fach & Asendorf Gallery, and a special thanks to Kim Asendorf.

What is imperfliction then:

A terrifying psychological illness where the
patient is worried that he/she is unbearably attractive, and will go to
pathological lengths to remedy this unhappy state of affairs.

in this case its all about forms…
