The opening of Generative, Glitch and Gifs is scheduled for 7 p.m. SLT on Friday, June 5 at Medici University Gallery of Art. The show will feature the works of Elle Thorkveld, FeelsEmpty, OfficialMichaelGreen and Pearl Grey (moi).
Much of the work is up now if you want to take a peek. The shows have been changing about once a week since the gallery has been up and you’re welcome to check back often. Medici University is located at LEA 23.
You’re welcome to stroll around the rest of the campus as well. Or ride the “Neko Rail” shuttle. There’s been a lot of collaboration and creativity happening here the last few months. Photography, drawing, creative writing, machinima, 3D sculptures and builds, performance art, field trips, philosophy discussions, events and the sharing of knowledge, techniques and fun. The individual studios and installations are ever changing.
You can read more about Medici University on the website.One of my pieces of Glitch Art with minimal alteration.
Thanks to everyone who attended the opening. It was fun. The show runs through June 19th.

I was not able to attend as I had my days mixed up for some concert tickets I had-which were tonight instead of tomorrow. I hope your work is still up and I will pop in tomorrow afternoon or evening! Apologies Pearl.
I understand. The work will be up through the 19th.
So, what is ‘Glitch Art’? Is it deliberate or found/accidental? Is it photography, or photo-manipulation?
It’s deliberate, accidental and photo-manipulation. A photo file is corrupted in another program.
If you want to keep the original photo or photos along the way, you need to make copies because the process will destroy them.
There are a variety of instructions online, many of which didn’t work for me because I have trouble understanding instructions and partly because everyone’s tech equipment is so different. I noticed that others had difficulty too.
Some corrupt photo files in Audacity but I don’t care for the look. I partially used Notepad++ (which I downloaded and have little idea of its original intent) and also attempted to change file format in Gimp (which I downloaded and don’t know how to use.) and it was mostly trial and error for me.
For me, I couldn’t get it to work well on real life photos but I did on some drawings and on virtual photography. Then, most of the results are too bright and pastel for me and I like mine less glitchy than most do. I had to make curating choices among my own taste and what others like and consider Glitch art.
It has been an interesting experiment for me, mostly done for participation with the other people involved in this particular gallery. Like you Chris, (unless you’ve changed your mind), I’m not really into abstract art.
What I enjoy is virtual photography of sim builds, mostly nature ones, some urban decay, some quirky interiors, certain kinds of art installation and documenting/sharing overlooked places. Like I’ve been doing.
But experimenting is a good thing.
I can appreciate some abstract, but, on the whole, it’s not my thing. Something I loath in SL is the amount of ‘galleries’ that are filled with crappy avatar ‘selfies’, and, while I don’t loath them, I’m also not in to ‘galleries’ full of SL snaps… I want to see art, not snapshots! There are so few galleries in SL that have actual art, as in paintings/drawings, work people have actually created. Glitch art sounds like fun, and a will make an effort to get Seri to your show.
I found a sweet little gallery on a rented 320 plot on the mainland.
The artist works in several real life mediums and has a small, but varied representation of them at this location. I’m intending to blog it about a week from now.
My girl visited, and bought 4 paintings for her collection… 3 of them those awesome tree paintings (:
Sweet! The trees are among my favorites too. Blog post scheduled for tomorrow.
