memegeN

Software written in Max Msp to rehash and create static, corrupted, parasitized, delayed and glitched memes. Although glitch techniques have become mainstream, a fully glitched image remains difficult to market because of its shifting layers and inherent elusive content. Maybe glitched images could jolt us out of the rigid everyday way of thinking that capital imposes on us, be it even for a brief moment. Our every online action feeds into the data economy, but to glitch this data is to render it semi-unusable. To scramble content with layers of abstraction and noise, whilst still somehow communicating its intentions, memegeN’s output is perhaps less prone to commodification.

MemegeN can generate movies or snapshots during its processing. Texts can be included. The MemegeN software will be available for download soon. In the meantime you can find memegeN’s output on my instagram.
