Work from Glitchometry.
“Daniel Temkin makes still and interactive pieces stemming from different forms of miscommunication, often built as uneasy collaborations with the computer. I’m featuring two of his projects which are related with glitches and errors produced by the use of basic softwares such as Photoshop. The first one is called Glitchometry, Daniel describes; each image begins as one or a few black squares or circles. They are sonified — imported into an audio editor. Sound effects are added to individual color channels, as if they were sound, transforming the image. Because the tool is used in an unconventional way, there is no immediate way to monitor the effect. The image manipulator has a sense of what each effect does, but no precise control over the result. It is a wrestling with the computer, the results of which are these images.” -Triangulation Blog
