Scavenge, Fold, Manipulate: Sampling the Ghost in the Machine
Tasman Richardson presents a beginner’s guide to forming abstract expressions with various analog glitches in this two day workshop. Using examples from his personal practice, Tasman will explain his concept of The New Flesh, and teach participants his methods for seeking, capturing and sorting glitches from CRT rescanning, Atari voltage manipulation, and cross wiring video to audio channels for applications in installation art, live visualizations, audio/video compositions, and more. This workshop is particularly focused on helping participants make these tools their own: on formulating your own language with these practices, fitting new techniques into your own artistic practice, and pairing your concepts with the right final exhibition formats.
