Mr Stein’s fear
My latest creation is exhibited in the Centre of Pompidou (Paris, France), during the show called DigitART organised and curated by Abdel Bounane.
here is a small video demonstrating the basics of touch.GL
This is my first piece developed specially for mobile device and i have to say i enjoyed every part of it. The app is not finished, because some functions are still missing, which i would like to implement in the next couple of weeks (directly post compositions to web gallery, animated gif writing etc.)
Touch.GL- glitch art app. for android based mobile devices, utilising P5glitch library, with the kind help of Kelemen-Eordogh family.
Iam preparing for the next show, which takes place in Paris really soon, and i need to develop something for android tablet, so i picked up my processing knowledge (not that much), and i started to develop something like a glitch drawing application.
The basics of this project is my earlier work which wasnt published yet. In this version the generative elements are more stronger, but i keep some possibility to manipulate portraits as well.
I have to say processing is difficult, but isnt that pain which i expected. There are many ways to generate glitch and artifact, P5glitch library is really helpful, and some really smart people already wrote many smart codes. At the end i put real data bending function as well.
there is no final title of this app i call it “touchGL”, but the concept is pretty easy, i let the users to create, manipulate own glitch compositions with different gestures.
When i have been begining to develop my birds and creatures, i did not think about the physical aspects of my work. Maybe i was waiting to a small “push”. But i got this support soon, from a fantastic curator, Nora O’Murchú. She invited me to exhibit on the show called “Run Computer Run” which takes place in Dublin.
here is a small text about the idea behind my work:
Creatures Creatures were created two years ago from artifacts. Creatures with human or animal-like outfit, though they are nothing else but well structured artifacts.
Artifact The notion has multiple meanings. In my case it is interpreted as a technological and an archeological notion. All my artifacts are based on a collection of virtual errors. If these errors are rearranged, new forms are expected to be resulted, that could be considered as byproducts. The new forms are created by a human (by me), however, through a technological process. Due to their human or animal-like forms those humans who are watching them, are guided back to the real world. (This is the archeological aspect of the artifact.)
Technology My technology is based on code, nodes, virtual digital technology. Usually I experiment with controllable random forms, i.e. with random artifacts. The result of the virtual digital technology will be always a computer artifact (digitally printed or screened two dimensional surface). To step forward (toward the state of the archeological artifact), this dimension should be left behind.
Hello World This is the exit from the virtual world. There are many possible ways of becoming real: real can be experienced physically, measured in a real space with its dimension, surface, colour, shadow, reflection, odor, or touch. An automatized, “without human process” way (3D printer for example) could be used, too, but it doesn’t lead to an artifact in its archeological sense. What is need is to use my senses, hands and skills to form or shape the object (based on the computer’s artifact).
Object This is the final result, made of material (stuff), built by me, hanging there as a bird (hanging as the gravity effects it). The object is exposed to light, inducing shadows. It is there, it is real, it is transubstantiated into an archeological artifact. The form is completely figurative.
this is the first sketch, the installation right now under realisation, i will post few images soon…
French artists Leo&Pipo have been asking me to participate in their collaborative project. Its an honour, because they are making really amazing collages and a lot of elegant street art stuff.
here is a small preview of their works.
My result is a kind of attribute of Leo&Pipo, adding some pop art cliches and a lot of random patterns. These random patterns are mostly memory glitches from my own taste, but i have been keeping the option to compose the image deeply.
here is the result:

beautiful sunday with the sanday family. They were a young and solid pair, but the geometry of their feelings are changed a lot during the years.
I have been starting to rethink my concept with glitch art, and how i would continue to develop my works. I have been starting to create pseudo narratives, based on old photos (most of them are unknown family photos), adding my different digital glitch processes. The basic idea is how to recode (decode) the meaning of the memory and how it can work together with my generated failure and pseudo narrativity.
story of mr.wolf
one day mr wolf wrote down too much numbers. when his memory was decoded the same numbers somehow modified his fragments.
Do All Dogs Go to Heaven? Will Our Pets Be With Us in Heaven?
mr. czettel found his skin full with his own memory fragments. But his moustache is still clean. Thanks g.d.
cu-cu sisters are sharing everything.
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:
and a really nice introduction to the glitch art section:
