You’ve probably come across quite a lot of “pop” art which uses the notion of glitching. Glitching is a trend in visual design and digital arts that treats visuals as if there is a digital error… or a glitch. It’s not new, as I first saw it in the late 80’s with the cyberpunk movement. But it seems to have a come back today.

We are seeing this everywhere at the moment. From music videos to conceptual art and it’s even starting to creep into advertising. I like it! :)

I’ve stumbled upon a nifty little web app that allows you to upload an image file, and lets you play with some variables to produce your own glitched image! try it out here!

Alleen die tv, die doet nog niet mee. Bijna iedere vader van jonge kinderen moet een omgangsregeling instellen om zijn tablet zelf te kunnen gebruiken. Het liefst laten de kindervingers het apparaat niet meer los. Maar met welke apps kunnen de Nederlandse kinderen zich vermaken? Vandaag een gastblog van Marieke van Osch (of ook wel @mariekemove) met 50 apps voor kids! Read the rest of this entry »
