ASCII – GL1tCH.4RT 2014 [Cypress [dub1] minimal techno]

Abstract:
ASCII – GL1tCH.4RT 2014 [Cypress [dub1] minimal techno] is a motion animation based on R. Fogelman’s ASCII – Graphic Glitch Art book, a collection of black-and-white graphics generated through use of ASCII – (American Standard Code for Information Interchange). The entire book was generated in real-time online using special characters and simple keyboard symbols, which in a diverse juxtaposition by copy and past action create unpredicted graphic patterns. As an artist and eco-activist, I felt a great need to have a way of producing graphics that allowed me to save paper, ink, paint and adding to overall environmental pollution.
