I have spent the last couple of days thinking about how and what to present in my final crit on the 20th. One thing I feel would be very useful for explaining the process of digital decay through image glitching is to show a series of screenshots of an image as it is progressively decayed. The concept of digital structure is very interesting, and yet another metaphor for consideration. In the code that comprises each digital image, there are huge differences in structure depending on the file type. I have done some experimentation with two files, one a JPEG and the other a TIFF, and through similar destructive techniques applied to each, I have highlighted the differences.
