With influences from abstract expressionism and new technologies, my work is part of an ongoing investigation into the language of the digital code and is an attempt to aid the computer into establishing an understanding of its own function. The 'glitch' occurs when an image coded in one language is opened in another program that uses less complicated symbols. This process of un-translation causes the computer to shed parts of its code at random thus rendering it, when converted back into an image, glitched. Much like abstract expressionist painting whereby the artist acts out unconscious drives to discover an aspect of him or herself, the process of producing the glitched image can be seen as a digital metaphor for this.
