  • Chroma Glitch: Data as Style

    Carolyn L. Kane

    Chapter from the book: Kane, C. 2019. High-Tech Trash: Glitch, Noise, and Aesthetic Failure.


    This chapter narrows the pervious chapter’s analysis to the more developed genre of “datamoshing,” the stylization of digital video compression algorithms. I here frame the analog and the digital as concepts, removed from the physical technologies they normatively signify. Doing so allows us to see how the structural of logic of either term also stands in for a set of cultural and stylistic modalities apropos to the past and present.
