This is a great breakdown of some very psychedelic ideas from Grant Morrison. Also checkout the Wisecrack video on Watchmen’s creator Alan Moore for more far out ideas

Is it important for you that your art is understood? What value holds an artwork of cryptic aspects with their meaning missed by most of its audience, which only perceive the Peshat and do not seek the Remez, the Derash, and the Sod? Steganography is the practice of hiding messages in the form of a manipulation of open media. On the steganographic spectrum, an artwork can have accessible aesthetic value together with a hidden message its existence known only to the creator, or it can constitute an encrypted message in its whole lacking immediate value to the spectator, but a hint to the existence of the encryption itself. If you plan to be in the vicinity of Tel-Aviv in February-March, I hear that encrypted deep within the new-media opportunities newsletter HaShot! is a residency open call on this theme. One source of inspiration is the bio-terror-level plague-doctor-chic YOUAREALREADYDEAD KILLTHEPRESIDENT conspiracy theory viral video 11B-X-1371:

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
