Foundations of Digital Image

Glitch

For this assignment, produce a version of an artwork by digitally modifying its digital image. You should follow this procedure:

  • Find a JPG image of a favorite artwork online

  • Save the file to your computer.

  • Open this image with a text editor. Those characters represent the source code of the image.

  • Randomly alter these characters. Cut / copy / paste lines over lines.

  • Save the image with another name but keep the filename extension as .JPG.

  • View the image with an image viewer.

  • If the image does not show up at all, this means you might have damaged some building blocks in the source code. In this case you should start over.

  • You can run this procedure again and again till you come up with an interesting result.
