As opposed to doing some work (which explains why I am posting so much this weekend) I was aiming to datamosh an explanation of datamoshing as part of my writings on the nature of new media interactive art.
As this is for me a purely experimental process, the product I was perhaps looking for did not necessarily emerge. However, it seems to me that this cyber-flaneuring in which I am currently engaged really does underline the use of the glitch to free oneself from the temporal narrative of traditional moving image experience and practice. Away from the loop (and maybe because of it) we enter into the realm of the unfinshed and the derive:
“a technique of rapid passage through varied ambiences. Dérives involve playful-constructive behavior and awareness of psycho-geographical effects, and are thus quite different from the classic notions of journey or stroll.”
So, borrowing heavily from ideas from the Situationist International, my meanderings this weekend have followed a derive that leads me not to that but to this, not to there but to here….
