Glitch art: works by a Japanese sculptor that will make your head spinBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/glitch-art-works-by-a-japanese-sculptor-that-will-make-your-head-spin1
In the last few years, computer graphics artists have not stopped experimenting and pushing the boundaries of the genre known as glitch art. This is an art format that includes the deliberate creation of digital or analog errors and shortcomings solely for aesthetic reasons.
For the viewer, the end result is an image that looks distorted, full of errors and "broken". Imagine what would happen if you open all the programs that you have on your computer, and then watch them all "fall" at one moment.
This is often what glitch art looks like. A complete vinaigrette of pixels, broken pictures and pieces of code sticking out from everywhere.
Inspired by the random and chaotic nature of glitch art, Japanese sculptor Yoshitoshi Kanemaki recreates this form of digital art in the physical world. His maddening creations reproduce the same digital "stuttering" and image fragmentation.
Yoshitoshi Kanemaki's works come in various sizes, from miniature sculptures to human-sized mannequins.
Each creation begins with a simple sketch drawn directly on a camphor tree. Then the sculptor carefully cuts out everything superfluous to create the effect of a real glitch.
