"Rather than searching for ruptures in systems, artists like Nick Briz provoke them deliberately through databending –disrupting the flow of information intentionally by distorting a file or software. The video “Binary Quotes” (2008) is “giving away the computer’s secrets by reading its “binary code” and so the computer is trying to do everything it can to defend itself”, as the artist states. Briz altered the binary code of the video, resulting in multiple video and audio distortions. As the initial video distances itself from the imitation of reality, the pixels and sounds that constitute it acquire an autonomous aesthetic quality for what they are, not for what they are supposed to represent". - See more at: interartive.org/2014/01/glitch-art/
This piece is an exploration of digital’s inherent properties by means of a systemized process of file corruption (working directly with binary code) and a study of error based digital art.
I like to think that I'm giving away the computer's secrets by reading its "binary code" and so the computer is trying to do everything it can to defend it self by attacking me. Just think about that as you watch.
