Is the search for error a form of knowledge?
A glitch or computer error is the result of unexpected or intentional variations that occur during the transmission of the information, altering the original data and leaving a new form: the fault.
This course combines the theoretical and practical study of glitch art, an all art that incorporates the failure in computer data in the search for new aesthetics, that put in crisis the apparent perfection of machines and computerized systems.
We will review examples of machine art from the 19th century in order to understand technological evolution and its influence on aesthetics and philosophy. We will study methods for designing and implementing computer errors applied to audiovisual art and 3D design and printing, learning to analyze the raw digital data structures to manipulate them using experimental techniques that incorporate random and accidental.
We will use free software tools like Blender and Audacity, along with hexadecimal and ASCII code editors that allow us to explore the aesthetics of error and to produce audiovisual pieces and 3D models. We will learn how to program applications in the Processing environment in order to corrupt real-time audio and video files and signals.
Personal computer required. No previous experience is needed.
Visual artists, designers, sound artists, architects, photographers and anyone who wants to experience the aesthetic possibilities of computer error.
