With Glitcher, I try to render the same kind of bugs, but on still images. The animation is the glitching process itself. My first experimentations were on images, like those:

I wasn’t very satisfied with these: too simple algorithm, no movement. I also discovered that simpler imagery, even very abstract gives the best result. So I worked it again, and here is the V2:

The circular effect on the last 2 has been created for the use of “Glitcher” live, while rehearsing for an upcoming project “TO”. More on this later…
