Sometimes the online world reveals unsuspected parallel dimensions. This is an unknown restyle of Neural independently (and secretly as we never knew about it) made by NY-based Motion and Graphic Designer, Clarke Blackham. Very nicely made, perhaps only a bit glossier for the magazine’s line, it testifies once more how even your most familiar outcomes can have another life somewhere else.
There’s a hidden ecosystem under the trumpeted broadband explosion. The disturbance element of the data transmission that went wrong are natural events that belong to the net as the water losses of water are of the water systems. Glitch Browser is project been born from a collaborative experience of Dimitre Lima (DMTR), Tony Scott (BEFLIX) and Iman Moradi (Organised) for the New Langton Arts Gallery of San Francisco. It’s a server side software that decodes web pages, giving it back with the pictures ‘damaged’ like if they had been transmission errors. The iconographic apparatus, so necessary to draw users attention, as even the spammers asserts, is then technically glitched. It’s as if you had a new level of code interposed between the machine and the (helpless) user. In this way the imperfection becomes an aesthetic tone and the missing pieces make the underlying structure visible. Light is shed on the machine and its operation, and, at the same time, the patina that covers the electronic layouts is corroded by its own nature.
