failed memories, the 4th selection

12 11 2013

Here is a new selection from my ‘failed memories’. I have been starting to experiment with new solutions, like the ‘augmented portraits’.

In these images I apply the notion or phenomenon of „ lack of time”. When I started to develop the ‘Failed memories’ series, my intention was to examine and involve  the notion of time as a factor into my images. To put it more simple, to visualise the factor and importance of time in the mechanisms of the memory, as  without time there is no memory.

I wanted to create an algorithm which needs time to modify the image. More precisely in memory (=image) the traces of the passing of the time is visible. The characteristics of the feedback memory is attempted to be visualized, as it can be told that the process of melting is really similar sometimes, creating linear like visual elements. This is how I imagine the passing of the time in the operation of the memory.

Of course i’am working on some ‘classic failed memories’ compositions, here is a small preview:

Murphy, the story of a fireman: Murphy was the best fireman in the city, he stopped all the fires, until one day there was a fire in his mothers house… 

astronauts

Jack and Jacob were friends for a long time. they spent their childhood together, they went to the same school, and finally they both became astronauts, but… but there was just one place left in the spaceship.

Touch.GL vs. failed memories

4 07 2013

Iam experimenting with touch.GL and Failed Memories. Here are the first results. What i really like, is the way how i can have direct acces to the  composition, i mean i can use my own fingers to place the image errors. In the code i used many random parameters, so these compositions  are all unique, there is no undo and option to create the same transformation again. This is why i think touch.gl is a good tool, because iam spending more and more time to work on the composition side.

wayne and joseph

“this memory was captured in 1976 when wayne and joseph decided to remain friends for the rest of their life. Unfortunately Joseph became unstabile and decided to stop all the relations with the external world. This transformation shows, how his memory changed after this crisis. “

touch.gl goes to Pompidou

1 07 2013

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.

In the last 3 weeks i was experimenting with different feedback based face distortions. Here is a small preview:

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:

here si the full list of the artists:

Glitch-Irion
Stallio
Pixel Noizz
Notendo
