Glitch Art was the theme suggested by Subi Shah and Bryn Gu. Everyone was encouraged to remain platform agnostic and show off any visual that focused on the glitch art aesthetic. We had so many presenters and if there are any corrections needed let me know, I'll fix them immediately!
Glitch Art is the pursuit of subverting a system that is presented as perfect and appreciating those deviations. There were presentations using CodePen, Processing, compression results, and more :D
I presented a base64 image mutation approach, changing the string value of the final results of an image blob, this approach requires Chrome to see the final results.
Subi was the first to show glitch art created by compression software in Slack, that altered the layering in a GIF.
Fen showed CSS effects that shift the visuals of an image without changing how the code is presented to the user then they showed off an awesome 404 page that focused on the glitch aesthetic.
Fred showed off an homage to Weirdcore's introduction in Aphex Twins - T69 Collapse, a visually glitchy experience of a music video.
Arelia showed off a glitch from Google Maps Arelia discovered when building a device orientation cube.
Bryn showed off a glitch effect that was inspired by an old hardware display glitch that would happen based on weather or aging tech.
Cody went the route of subverting images into an ordering system with some wonderful results! Pixel Glitch Glotcher
Eric's SVG scene was a great tribute to Blade Runner's futuristic glitchy aesthetic.
Ana showed off their illustrations that used with a glitch effect to distort and shift the image's RGB values.
CROWS! EVERYWHERE! Julian built an experience with an essay about "What is a Game?" that generates crows that get larger each time.
Creatures mate, evolve, die and prey in Jeremy's Genetic algorithm builder that builds a micro ecosystem that changes over time.
