VIEW IN MY ROOM
In 2015, my website was hacked: lines of text and image were haphazardly vandalized and replaced by recognizably altered versions of the original. In an effort to regain my illusion of control, I decided to investigate ways of distorting, hacking and redacting my own work. In my series, databent, I am the vandal. I employ a text editor to manipulate the raw data behind the original image, altering the code itself and permanently corrupting the file. The resulting random distortions are only revealed to me when the computer attempts to read back the data. Each image in the series is printed as a ChromaLuxe on aluminum.
