Raw data are numbers, characters, images or other forms of output.Computer programs interpret this data based on instructions in theprogramming. What happens when these programs do not know how tointerpret this data? What happens if you manually manipulate these rawdata forms of numbers and characters? This deliberate corruption givesnew understanding to how programs render this data, and what happenswhen the program doesn’t know how to render it - creating a random,unpredictable, and unknown aesthetic.
What if the images we see, the videos we watch, the sound we hear wereall in this state of malfunction? What if the things we take forgranted, or have no understanding of simply were corrupted. Would youbecome angry at the computer, or would you embrace this error, use it,manipulate it, produce it willingly?
