Join visiting artist Evan Meaney in exploring the history, culture and art of the Glitch. Using methods that include databending, media transcoding, and hex editing, you will learn to hack into existing media to investigate the inner workings of how we interact with moving and still images in our digital landscape. Lets break a near-perfect system…and celebrate an imperfect one!
