Can hacking the innards of a file give you insights into how the underlying data works? Can experimenting with the code of an image create new aesthetics? The answer to both can be found during this workshop. Databending, or datamoshing, is a complex technique wherein you will learn to use various experimental methods to alter the code of still and motion imagery files, ultimately create a glitchy, psychedelic result. In this workshop, we'll cover the philosophy of glitch and glitch art techniques, discuss the necessary software, try out experimental techniques as well as various methods of outputting the files. Bring laptops and images you'd like to work with.
