Anti Hi-Def Glitch Style

Dan Gould

Datamoshing. It’s a video editing style that’s exactly as the name sounds. The look is achieved by messing around with video compression keyframes and roughing up the data until a beautiful, choppy, psychedelic mess ensues. Think of a video signal royally glitching up, and you get the idea. Kanye West uses this style in his recent “Welcome To Heartbreak” video (below) and check out Chairlift “Evident Utensil” for more mind-melting fun.

The idea of glitch based art is nothing new, but it seems to be enjoying a renaissance. Maybe it’s an anti high definition backlash – or visual representation of future shock?
