plotting glitches

Plotting Glitches explores the patterns and complexity in computer glitches using a sample set of over 8000 glitches. The glitch images are processed to extract information such as entropy, hue, colour saturation, shape etc. The values are then visualized in an effort to discover interesting patterns and features. These image plots are one means of visualization which provide the ability to explore large collections of glitches from multiple sources simultaneously. Plotting Glitches crowd-sources its content from hundreds of users who have submitted their glitches to public domain web sites such as Flickr. This project is part of a larger multi-modal  inquiry that employs animated 3D models, rapid prototype sculptures, time re-mapping and data extraction to investigate glitches within an art/research practice.
