This piece is a unique video capture from one of my Glitch People series of code-driven, continuous Flash animations.
This video uses found, accidental glitches and encoding errors to create the aesthetics you see here. I don't use glitch software to create these effects, the layers of video are chance captures from various sources.
These animations are akin to performances using video, still image and ActionScript3 code to manipulate the visual content in real-time. The animations can play forever: constantly changing layers, blends and movement never display the same sequence of pixels. Each time the animation is launched, it plays differently. The original animated artworks look like video, but are in fact non-linear, endless, performed, digital pieces. The video displayed here is but one capture of the “performed” video at a given place and time.
