  2. I was out exploring among the wave worn coves at Tillamook Beach on the coast of Oregon. I was taking pictures with a little 3mega pixel camera that I found ages ago at a garage sale for $5. The camera started glitching out so I took a short vidi of the waves. You can barely make out the abstract form of my friend Heather around the 20sec mark. Then the waves roll in pink. .

About artifacts:

The word artifact means as much as ‘artificially made’, or ‘made by human practice’. In traditional media theory, the term refers mostly to an inaccurate, unwanted effects resulting from a (not perfectly working) technology. Attempts to use these artifacts as creative tools can be seen throughout art history and popular culture. In for instance A COLOUR BOX (1935), Len Lye explored the technology of film by painting and scratching the celluloid. He changed artifacts from unwanted, unaccepted and ignored noise, into tools that convey meaning. Put differently, by relaying agency and intentionality, these artifacts are no longer understood as noise originating in information theory, but are elevated to objects that find their meaning within humanities or social sciences. In the coming paragraphs I will describe two different artifacts; namely compression, and glitch to make this point clear.

The artifacts I focus on in this channel and in my studies are (mostly) originating from digital feedback, glitch and compression in both the audio and the visual.
