• 2019-10-09 WED • 18:00 CEST • lecture • online

Searching for error in obscure or obsolete Linux distributions – with reference to component mismatch, video misinterpretation and using older hardware to make Glitch art (through necessity or perversity) (with demonstrations)

An examination of various errors discovered through researching old operating systems to run on older hardware in a bid to make art in the absence of money and strategies to exploit these errors to make glitch art. ( With digressions into the politics of hardware and the entry costs of making glitch art, of the basic costs of exposure including discussion of more recent technologies, such as neural nets, the high price of cuda capable video cards (is this the direction glitch art should be taking?) the need for higher and higher definition and quality video – facebook playback issues, the time it takes to upload hd content on rural broadband vs access to fibre, computational expense vs free access.

With reference to Legacy OS 2 – mp4 and other misinterpretations in a live or persistent installation which are capturable within and by the os using quick-player and xvidcap (different results given by setting 24 bit or 16bit colour both reproducible and capturable) with demonstrations. And with reference to preferred video cards and why they might work better than others – the xvesa solution.

X11 poisoning – Legacy os mini – how to break X11, and strategies for capturing and exploiting using webcams and circuit bent webcams with demonstrations.

Plus ogv misinterpretation within Gnome-mplayer on Ubuntu 9.04 and 10.04, Mandriva linux and others

Cavs misinterpretation and capture in Vlc on Ubuntu 10.04 with demonstration ( with reference to strategies for using older distros and repositories and answering questions such as why use old distros at all relating back to costs of access , Exposure and computational cost)
