Insane Game Geek Glitch Art Madness

Tuesday, August 26th, 2008

Castlevania loaded in Super Mario Bros. 3:

Gradius II loaded in Gradius:

Castlevania 3: Dracula\'s Curse loaded in Castlevania 2: Simon\'s Quest:

L over at SelectButton has made some amazing glitch art (and music!) by loading the save state from one NES game into a completely different (and thus incompatible) title, under emulation of course. The consequent memory corruption produces a bizarre, glitched out approximation of both games. Is this what happens when you put two NES cartridges into one of Jeff Goldblum’s telepods? Read the thread on their forums for more screens and experiments.

Disassembled Household Appliances

Disassembled Iron
“This was my senior thesis project at the hartford art school this past year…i took apart used cooking/cleaning appliances, and arranged their interior parts very systematically on a white sheet of bristol board. my intention was to explore the hidden “brains” of these appliances; allowing us to view these everyday objects from a new perspective.”

Check the rest out right here, it certainly made me see my dustbuster and extensive collection of irons in a brand new light.

I was in Digbeth the other day and thought I’d share some images of the graffiti house on the corner of Andover Street.

Out of Ink

Monday, August 25th, 2008

I like solarised images and thought I’d decorate the flat with a tweak of that R2D2 Tengui which I posted about last week… Half way through Mount Fuji, the printer ink started to fail… but the old girl still made a valiant effort to get the job done…

If You Could

Monday, August 25th, 2008

The ‘If you could’ project has been going for a few years, illustrators and graphic designers are invited to submit a picture which explores what they would do with the infinite possibilities of tomorrow. They publish a lovely book with the collected images and the 2009 edition will take the form of a diary… I’m really into textures and scrappy detail so I scribbled down this at the last minute, focusing on the ironic theme of preparation.

I thought if someone was actually using it as a diary they should have to write around my illustration… they didn’t agree… it will not be published…
