"instead of making exaggerated claims about the creative (or even collaborative) role of the computer, she describes it as an expressive tool"

"Carole Spearin McCauley should be better recognized as a major innovator in the early period of expressive computing"

Rosa Menkman - Wikipedia
"Rosa Menkman is a Dutch art theorist, curator, glitch artist and visual artist specialising in glitch art and resolution theory. Menkman has curated several international exhibitions of other artists' work.

Menkman's research into the emerging form of glitch art was published as the book The Glitch Moment(um) at the University of Amsterdam, by the Institute of Network Cultures.

She wrote A Vernacular of File Formats[2] and the Glitch Studies Manifesto[3] in the same year. The manifesto was awarded 'best practice' by Virtueel Platform, then sector institute for e-culture in the Netherlands.[4]

The publication of The Glitch Moment(um) coincided with the GLI.TC/H festival, organized by Menkman in collaboration with American artists Nick Briz and Jon Satrom. The first GLI.TC/H festival in 2010 (Chicago) was followed by a second and third edition in 2011 (Chicago, Amsterdam, Birmingham) and 2012 (Chicago).[5]

In 2015 Menkman opened the institutions of Resolution Disputes at Transfer Gallery in New York.[6] In October 2015, one of the works in the show, DCT, referencing Discrete Cosine Transform was awarded 1st prize at the Crypto Design Challenge hosted by MOTI.[7]

Her Vernacular of File Formats piece has attainted "cult status."[8]"

Databending using Audacity Effects | Question Something
"When pursuing the wonderful practice of databending I think that experimentation is all important. Discovering new ways to do things is a key element to the entire experience. But I also know that without tutorials from Antonio Roberts (HelloCatFood) and Stallio (AnimalsWithinAnimals) I wouldn’t have taken the steps to really engage in the subject. They acted as a gateway for me to try new things and experiment with other ideas.

If you’ve never encountered it before, I highly recommend checking out Antonio Roberts’ tutorial on databending with Audacity, which can be found here.

If you’ve never heard of Audacity, then here is the website. It’s a free audio editing program with tools to cut and paste sound and to add effects, but it can also be so much more. With just the touch of a few buttons it can take an image and corrupt its form to create something entirely new – and the process is fascinating.

Following Antonio’s tutorial, you can trick Audacity in to opening an image file as a sound. Not only does this give you a sound wave which you can manipulate and bend to your will, but a lot of files sound pretty funky. A bit like if you put a Decepticon in a blender with a couple of R2 droids.

The easiest way to manipulate a file in Audacity is to select a section of the file and apply one of the built in sound effects to it. Now I’m no computing whizz kid but the way I see it when you apply a sound effect to a sound file, the program takes that file and alters the file data in the manner which it’s been told will achieve that effect. So, for example, if you were to apply an echo effect then it would repeat parts of the file, diminishing the repetition after each iteration. The wonderful thing is that it will do this regardless of what the file actually is. Audacity doesn’t know or care whether the file is a sound or not, it will alter it in the manner instructed.

When applied to an image… Well let me show you."

56 Broken Kindle Screens |
"56 Broken Kindle Screens is a print on demand paperback that consists of found photos depicting broken Kindle screens. The Kindle is Amazon’s e-reading device which is by default connected to the company’s book store.

The book takes as its starting point the peculiar aesthetic of broken E Ink displays and serves as an examination into the reading device’s materiality. As the screens break, they become collages composed of different pages, cover illustrations and interface elements."

Cyberpunk ponchos let you hide in the glitched-out future | The Verge
"Do you want to live through the digital apocalypse in style? Timefly has put together a series of futuristic ponchos that place heavily digital designs onto physical canvases. They're modern camouflage for a cyberpunk punk world — one in which geometric patterns and eerily smooth CG could help you to blend into a metropolis of blinking TVs and glitched out displays. Timefly launched late last year and has been adding works by different digital artists ever since. If you're daring enough to be at this year's Def Con, you'll be able to catch live, tripped-out visuals by Timefly at the Codame party this Saturday night — for everyone else, a spread of its entire fashion line is below."
