We experience life and evolve through digital spaces that hold less and less meaning to us every day. As we are acting everyday more like them, our quest to understand the machines who encrypt our data has become closer to an identity crisis.

The girl with the Mejadra Eyes has the Sun in her Mouth

26 Dec

I more or less started to get interested in live video-art after seeing Mejadra Eyes, one of Israel’s most prominent VJ’s (and I guess one of the very few actually making a living out of it out here in the desert), perform with Fortuna in their duo Shemesh BaPe (sun in the mouth) some years ago. To me it was actionable inspiration – it was awesome AND it was something I thought I might be able to do myself one day. Yesterday she got me coffee 🤩

Based on a real bug

In 2008, programmer and glitch artist Doron Adler wrote the world’s first mobile client for streaming live video from the iPhone to the web. This was done for jailbroken iPhone (1st gen), before it had any official video support! But there was one small problem… the images were sampled from buffers of six frames, the order of which was unknown, causing a jerky glitch effect… I was hooked! Unfortunately, the original videos are no longer available, so for the past few weeks, Doron’s nostalgia and my obsession drove us to try and recreate the effect. And now you can too! junkie is an online glitcher that applies short-window frame shuffling, and we made it optionally cross-channel “for better effect”. Wait for the drop:

Doron explains how he made this clip:
1. Found on YouTube – a black & white video called “1920s Dance Craze
2. Colorized it with DeOldefiy
3. Found on SoundCloud – A royalty free dubstep song
4. Ran junkie on the Colorized video and got many junkie-glitched flavors (different parameter choices)
5. Cropped parts I liked from each flavor
6. Edited the cropped parts and added the soundtrack with iMovie

Intersubjectivity

4 Dec

For the last year, I have been running an open-calls community-backed open-source newsletter for new-media artists called HaShot! (in Hebrew, meaning: The Whip). We’ve just completed the first class of our own new residency called HaFlogger! (The Flogger), where I work with artists to introduce Algorithms and AI into their process. Resident artist Yosef Mashiach developed new techniques for face manipulation based on stylegan-encoder, and his creation will be part of a new theatrical performance الأيام Alayam אלאי-ם going up next week! This is one experiment gone trippy:
