This was a fun little experiment I did using openframeworks. I saw some glitch art made by Adam Ferriss and decided to give it a try myself. I set up a simple program which loads an image. Pressing “Q” would apply a series of operations on the entire image, such as swapping 2 pixels, altering the color of certain pixels, etc.
I wrote several different algorithms that resulted in some cool results. I was also able to capture some of these algorithms in action since they were so interesting to watch.
I rewrote this program using Unity and tidied up the code, however it unfortunately runs much slower than it did in openframeworks.
