"I am a new media artist who works primarily in glitch art. My art deals with finding beauty in the mundane and forgotten. My approach to creation tends to be scattershot, creating multiple variations of a single image and choosing whichever piece is most aesthetically pleasing to me in the moment.
Using a process known as "sonification" the act of converting data into sound, then using a digital audio workstation to process the raw data I am able to pull colour and shape out of everyday images and video I have scavenged from the internet."
Quixoticidiot is an artist utilizing glitch processes to expose and expand our understanding of color. The mind-bending movement and kenetics in his gifs explore a unique perception of common imagery by literally wringing it out of the piece. His over-saturated works perpetuate our connection and interaction to both digital media as a means of information and of art.
Be sure to catch Quixoticidiot’s work at Internet Art Gallery, opening November 21st.
What was your earliest experience with the internet?
I've always been vaguely aware of the existence of the internet from a young age but my first memory of using the internet is building and reading websites on free hosting sites like Angelfire or Geocities.
When were you first aware of having a public identity?
I feel that my public identity is almost always in flux and I think I've always been aware of my public identity in various degrees so it makes it difficult for me to pinpoint a specific event.
How does your online identity affect your real world identity?
I honestly don't have that big of an online identity I mostly observe. Whether that lack of online identity is a reflection of my real world identity or vice versa is difficult to say.
