Gl1t̷c̛ḩ ̸ ͢Aŕt 101: Video error techniques
The Glitch video workshop describes and puts into practice an attractive reinterpretation video technique – datamosh. Participants will use free software to work (transcoding, modifying, and conserving video materials) and to create sustainable multimedia errors.
Participants are asked to download the following programs before the workshop:
HandBrake [Linux / macOS / Windows]
Avidemux 2.5.6 [Linux – Wine / Windows] / 2.5.6 [macOS]
VLC [Linux / macOS / Windows]
Gl1t̷c̛ḩ ̸ ͢Aŕt 101 is a series of three (16 February, 23 February and 2 March 2021, 6–8 p.m.) modular ‘glitch art’ workshops aimed at finding, documenting, and catalyzing unusual and aesthetic flaws in digital visual file systems. Participants will learn about working with digital files, free software, and digital art creation processes based on knowledge of the concepts (format, memory, codec, program, and license) as building blocks of the modern digital ecosystem. Each workshop will begin with a brief presentation of glitch creation methods, techniques, and practices, emphasizing terminology and databending practice. The workshops will be led by artists, hackers, and event organizers Dina Karadžić and Vedran Gligo.
You don’t need specific prior knowledge or special equipment to participate; you only need a computer with a microphone and a stable internet connection. The workshops consist of three two-hour meetings, which will take place on Tuesdays (16 February, 23 February, and 2 March) via the open platform talk.formatc.hr.
Participation is free of charge.
