Autumn is right around the corner and most fashion brands are launching their campaigns. So did adidas Y-3, last season was all about surveillance cameras, this time the campaign is called “Satellite”. The website is once again a very nice execution of this concept, the digital glitches during the transitions are top notch. When it comes to the apparel, well it’s adidas Y-3, it’s not for everybody but there some nice pieces in the collection.

Glitch Browser is a website that lets you browse other websites. The only catch is that the Glitch Browser filters out all of the images and manipulates them just a little. This should be a default functionality of every web browser.
It is probably no suprise that I mention the new adidas Y-3 Spring / Summer 2009 campaign. The adidas Y-3 website is one of the few websites out there, where you can expect a very nice relaunch twice a year. It’s a fashion brand after all.
They have choosen to use the surveillance cameras kind of look for the website and the campaign video. If you are a regular here, you’ll have noticed that digital glitches are my thing. The Y-3 products are still quite different than the new adidas SLVR collection, they are more true fashion. I’m not a expert, but some of the women’s footwear designs look quite fresh.
But be warned, the website is quite heavy and will take some time to load.
Datamoshing is how you call the video technique in this music video “Evident Utensil” for the band Chairlift. I would still call it digital glitches, but datamoshing sounds better (than the music in this video). So no, this video is not f*cked up, Ray Tintori of Court 13 who directed it, did it on purpose.

Text2Image is a little tool created by Ted Davis. Its name is quite self-explanatory, you can submit some text and you’ll get an image back in return. Glitches!
This is a page from a forthcoming book called “Glitch: Perfect Imperfections“, an excellent title I must say!
It’s on my wish list now.

But also hardware tools like this ‘Minimal Video Mixer’. Pure hardware porn.
