A project in collaboration with Juanjo Fernandez from gnoma.org.
The ERR¬OR project has three stages:
1. The first stage is an investigation on the aesthetics
of glitches (errors) in the digital media. During this first stage we
will be building an archive with images, videos and audio tracks (THE
RAW ARCHIVE). This archive is based on errors that have not been modified:
“pure errors” that can happen during compressions, processor
problems etc. We invite anyone that is interested on participating to
send us some errors (glitches). In this moment we are working on finding
more space on the web, so meanwhile you can send us your captures at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Aslo if you have your videos or MP3´s already on the net, please
send us the exact address, and we'll link the from here.
Also it would be interesting that you send us a brief description of how
the error ocurred.
2. The second stage consists on the modification of the
files in the archive, we will open this calling as soon as we have more
space on the web (luckily a php server), this way people can download
the files, modify them and upload them back again.
3. The third stage consists on making a series of events
related with glitches and errors, (experiments with audio and images that
have been inspired by glitches and errors).
In these events we will use the files from the archive. We invite you
to join us!
Also we will soon be opening a text section that includes more links and
theory about errors and glitches.
