random receipt for a good glitch

30 07 2009

I tested COGE today morning (happy beta tester life), everything went fine, tested the built-in OpenEmu player, ( and of course Vade’s special glitch ROM) and worked well. After it just quit, and i needed to make some graphic works (i dont like it), so i started a graphic editor (not Ad.be) and voila i was able to produce this random glitch.

Very carefully i made some transformations and rotations, so i had some parameters to play with.

Well, this is just a correction or definition of the glitch:

computer glitch is the failure of a system, usually containing a computing device, to complete its functions or to perform them properly. It frequently refers to an error which is not detected at the time it occurs but shows up later in data errors or incorrect human decisions. While the fault is usually attributed to the computer hardware, this is often not the case since hardware failures rarely go undetected.

Its a kind of movement nowdays, artist producing glitch (or producing this kind of failure). There are several groups collecting glitchy images:

Or  Vade, mentioned above, who is writing kind of video generators, utilizing the fragments left in the videocard, to rebuild picture structures.
