The Lazarus Effect: Bringing Broken Files Back to Life

letsglitchit:

I’m sure many of you have experimented with the Wordpad effect, wherein you open up an image in Wordpad which formats the data in such a way to produce effects like this:

If you’ve spent very long playing with this effect at all, I’m sure you’ve also noticed that sometimes the file will simply…

While working on machine knits for an April residency at ETIB, I knit a 196 x 1280 pixel motif which was created by editing the data of a blank, white JPG with a hex editor.

An *actual glitch knit resulted by using a corrupted knitic interface to machine knit my motif.

Though I created the motif using a “glitch art” technique, the buggy knitic created something I have been interested in doing since even before I began producing glitch textiles back in 2007 and, that is, glitching the machine that knits.

Here’s a little vine of me knitting what turned out to be a 1x4 meter knit:
