JPEG CRUSH

Home > Projects > JPEG Crush

glitch art is deliberate manipulation of data, and data is ever evolving.
as our lives continuously get transcribed into bits, our relationship with data keeps changing;
binding closer. the ability to control the usage of data, of information,
is in the interest of anyone who has pieces of themselves stored somewhere.

jpeg crush is a workshop aimed to introduce the public to the flawed aspects of our visual society.
demystifying compression technologies and reclaiming them by databending techniques is the first step to understanding the digital spaces where our databodies sonder.
from random hex editing to specific markers of the jpeg format, the corruption case study
will be set on content uploaded to social media.

Without prior experience required and an adapted content depending on the audience's responsiveness, every participant will leave with a glitch and guidance towards further experimentation. just bring your laptops.
