The Art of PNG Glitch
Documentary, Programming codes
This artwork displays the entire range of possible glitches in PNG (Portable Network Graphics) files. The word “glitch” refers to defective computer data or a state in which a malfunction occurs but the data can still be accessed. Despite PNG’s 20-year history, the fact that it can be used to produce glitches and other effects was not widely known. The artist published all of his findings on the Internet.
