Images taken with an intentionally broken Kodak DC200 Megapixel camera.

An example of what I call the “Insta-Richter”.  This is a pretty standard effect achieved through circuit bending the CCD driver chips.

Revisiting the idea about pixels and stacks.

The color of each pixel is the result of applying a series of operations to a value and iterating those operations over the entire image. If you have a look at the code, you can see the operations are pretty much arbitrarily chosen and the outcome is difficult to know in advance.

I have achieved pixelFlocking!

eh?

Simply put: Image processing using (networked) localized feedback.

Allow me to explain further: Feedback requires an input source and output destination connected such that the output is directed to the input. In this case, source = some pixels, destination = other pixels onto which we map the source, plus some transformations. Here the transformations are displacement and hue rotation. The displacement is controlled by a flocking algorithm, one that appears in the Processing examples written by Daniel Shiffman.

At present, I have a lot of work to do to clean things up and make some intuitive affordances, but here’s the sketch code in progress:

If it looks kinda like datamoshing, it’s because the very same process is evoked when you remove i-frames and repeatedly copy and paste a p-frame. Sorry about the jargon, but basically I’ve coded a process that datamoshing exploits, namely a feature of video rendering on the decoding side that applies vector based displacement to data in a frame buffer, etc.

Macroblock Study 2 (128x128 pixel selections) 

A study of macroblock artifacts induced by selectively replacing characters in JPEG files.

The source image for these artifacts started as a 1200x1200px white JPG.  After 10 steps of replacing characters, various micro compositions are selected, highlighting macroblock artifacts.
