Datamoshing is the act of removing and/or replacing the I-frames (delta keyframes) and/or P-frames from a compressed video datastream causing the playback image and motion-vector data to distort with unpredictable & glitched outcome, resulting in trippy, LSD-like visuals. Yung Jake is a very interesting artist working with this technique http://yungjake.tumblr.com/:
In our post of the 2nd of May, we spoke about the pixel fashion in the fall 2011/12 collection of Anrealage. They try to capture "true" beauty by using low-res prints of structures and weaves. http://fullinsight.com/2011/05/anrealage-pixel-fashion-3. Anrealage is inspired by initial sources that can be transformed into multiple images, which enables them to create a similar "multi-dimensionality" as Yung Jake with his datamoshing.
Rechecking the video of the Mandelbrot set, you'll see the same bases: one simple fractal, seemingly in a chaotic state, transformed into a beautiful coherent sudden structure.
